My life has been rather amazing. I really did not have it easy for most of my life. I can honestly say I have made many mistakes. I have also had many people judge me in that context, not willing to see me as I am now.
But let’s be real — who hasn’t made a mess of their lives? Yes there have been some bad choices, but then again in those choices I have learned many things. I have had a series of interesting experiences that have set me up to be grateful the next time something wonderful happens. It usually is a result of gratitude that the good stuff happens.
So then next time you have a struggle, instead of getting frustrated take a deep breath. Breathe. Look at it and try and see what you can learn from it. I am not saying suck it up buttercup. I am just suggesting that you re-frame it into something positive. It just may make it just a tad bit easier to bear.
