Remember those books when you were little? The books where you can decide what you want to happen next and the character takes a different path? Well, real life is actually like that. Except things don't always turn out the way we expect them to even when we think we know what's going to happen down that path we've chosen.
We may not be able to control what happens in life, but we certainly can control how we react. Attitude is everything. Instead of "why me?", the question really should be "what wonderful things are in store for me?" because tough times are the stepping stones in our lives. You could be reading this thinking, this chick is annoying. Positivity blah blah blah, get over yourself. But focusing on the negative (and I've said it before), only spreads more negativity. Wouldn't you rather be thankful for what you do have instead of wishful for what you don't? It's tough, but it can be done. Let this blog entry be a reminder to myself to look back on during the hard days.
You could be here one day and gone the next. So live in the moment cause Forrest Gump was spot on....
Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get.
