I have had this quote hanging in my office since I became a counselor. It is one of my favorites. So true. So wise.
We cannot always choose the circumstances of our lives, but we can choose how we face those circumstances. Your past, your pain, your disappointment do not have to define you. Instead, you can let that pain or that grief or that sorrow shape you. You can choose how you are changed by your circumstances.
What are you working on today? Are you working on being miserable or are you working on being strong?
