This or That.?!
This week has been a roller coaster...literally and figuritively!
The ups and downs in life seem to be hitting a lot of people right now, and I am no exception. We live in some amazing times. At any point in our day, we can make a decision on how we are going to handle our situation. I have narrowed my decisions down to three outcomes.
1) Say, what the hell and keep going forward.
2) Be sad / mad and let it get me down.
3) Let the situation dictate my well being.
I have felt all the above this week, and all of them this year.
How can we move forward if we can't let go of the past? I don't think we can? It sure is a lot harder to let things go, but it is a must if we care about our future.
I will leave you with these few wise words from some amazing people. Feel free to add to the list.
