go home

“Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.”  ~ Khalil Gibran

When adversity strikes, I have a tendency to become cynical... some might even say bitter. That's my initial reaction, taken with a bit of humor.

But bitter is not a good place to land; it's more of a trap than a solution. At some point, I eventually acknowledge the reality of where I am and determine what I need to learn or know or change to make things feel better.

When I find myself in this place, I need to take my own 
Take inspired action toward the life you want. Patience and positivity will help. Remove negative influences from your life. Surround yourself with that which helps you focus on the positive: take a hike, meditate, read a book, have coffee with an inspiring friend.
Our thoughts are powerful. Don't let them lead you into a trap. Take inspired action.

change your thoughts --> change your feelings --> change your actions
