“It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters”
~ Epictetus ~
How we feel really is determined by how we think. We always have a choice to feel happy or sad, positive or negative and it is a decision we make independent of circumstance. Sad and bad things happen – yes – and we are entitled to accommodate the related emotion … but from then on it is up to us. Try to stay positive.
Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.
