Life is not always easy. As a matter of fact, life can be downright brutal at times. Shit happens. Some of us have survived some pretty tough shit; abuse, trauma, loss of loved ones, serious illness, financial difficulties, things that you imagine you will never be able to survive. But you do. Even after the most devastating events, life goes on. And you survive. Who you are and who you become is a direct result of the unique series of events you have endured and how you have responded to those events. While you aren’t always capable of controlling what happens to you, you are capable of controlling how you react, how you recover, and what you take away from the experience
“Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it.” - Charles Swindoll
