Responding to Life

“Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.”

 Charles Swindoll

This is an important quote to remember whenever that you think life is against you. Life presents you with experiences and it’s you that makes them positive and/or negative.

Try to not get into the mentality that life is against you and is only providing you with things that are bad. You have to realise that you have gotten into the habit of making neutral things bad in your own mind and responding to them in a negative way.

Change the way you perceive what is happening and then you can respond better and have better experiences. There’s always a way to look at a situation differently and find a silver lining.

Let’s look for the silver linings, starting with today.
