Sometimes Things Just Happen


For anyone going through THINGS right now...

Sometimes things just happen. Life throws curveballs and gives you lemons and will deal you a bad hand every now and then. It doesn't mean your a bad person or you have bad karma or that God hates you. It means that sometimes things just happen.

How you react in these situations determines the quality of your life.

You can let the THING defeat you, destroy you. Or you can accept the challenge, barrel through it, and move on (and hopefully have learned something).

You are always in control of your emotions.
Attitude is everything.
Strong is beautiful.
It's a bad day. Not a bad life.
Remind yourself that it's going to be okay.

“I am responsible. Although I may not be able to prevent the worst from happening, I am responsible for my attitude toward the inevitable misfortunes that darken life. Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have – life itself.” ~Walter Anderson
