“You are defined not by life’s imperfect moments, but by your reaction to them. And because there is joy in embracing—rather than running screaming from—the utter absurdity of life.”
— Jenny Lawson
It is not what happens to you that counts as much as how you perceive it. You can either be a victim of your history or a master of your destiny just by changing your perspective. One of the greatest discoveries in human nature is that you change your life by changing your perspectives and attitudes of mind.
– Dr J Demartini
They say everything in life happens for a reason and there is a lesson to be learned from each experience. I’ve had a few hard experiences that caused me to wonder what kind of lesson I could learn from them, but looking back, those experiences contributed to who I am today.
Do you have any similar experience that seemed like hell in the moment, but actually helped you some way or another in your life?
Until next time.
Our life is shaped by our mind; we become what we think. Suffering follows an evil thought as the wheels of a cart follow the oxen that draws it. Our life is shaped by our mind; we become what we think. Joy follows a pure thought like a shadow that never leaves.
Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.
~Henry David Thoreau
“When we are unable to find tranquility within ourselves, it is useless to seek it elsewhere.”
~ Francois de La Rochefoucauld
