Life Happens and Then……

My Father shared a wonderful quote with me last week (that I very much needed to hear!) and I felt compelled to share it, and my reflections, with you this morning.

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.  Attitude, to me, is more important than facts.  It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do.  It is more important than appearances, giftedness or skill.  It will make or break a company… a church…. A home.  The remarkable thing is that we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we embrace for the day. We cannot change our past.  We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable.  The only thing we can do is play the string we have, and that is our own attitude… I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how I react to it.  And so it is with you.  We are in charge of our attitude.”  Charles Swindle

I love this quote – such a vivid reminder that we are truly responsible for our choices.  I would say, “Life Happens and then we are 100% responsible for who we choose to be in every moment.”  I believe the sentiment is the same.  We absolutely cannot control what goes on around us, and there will be times of struggle, pain, unhappiness and frustration, but we can control WHO WE CHOOSE TO BE IN THE MOMENT.  Read more »
