I believe in the power to create our lives. No. Scratch that. I know we have the power to create our lives.
That doesn’t always mean we can control our circumstances — how things play out. But it does mean we can control our reactions (responses) to those uncontrolled circumstances.
Our lives are not dictated by our health, our relationship status, our financial situation, our lack . . .
Our lives are dictated by our desire to rise above, stay present in the moment, and our ability to keep going.
And really, all that matters is that we stay the course. We show up. We do what we can with what we have until we have something better. (I think Maya Angelou said something like that.) That’s how growth happens. All the hangups and inconveniences along the way, they just make us stronger. And if we look at them from the right perspective, they show us what we don’t want, which can motivate us to seek out (create) what we DO want.
And that’s it. Take note of the things in your life you want to be different, and work to change them. Change your thoughts. Your habits. Your perspective. And you just might change your life. 💛
