“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.
