Sometimes, things happen that make you stop and think. There are two ways to go with those thoughts. You can either dwell on the struggles you’ve gone through and hate the world for putting you through them or you can look at those same struggles and thank the world for putting you through them.
I think back on just what I have gone through this past year or even the past few years and as much as it was tough at times, there were such good things that also happened to me that I have to appreciate them.
The tough stuff makes you stronger. It makes you realize what you are capable of handling. It makes you realize that life will never be predictable but that doesn’t mean it won’t be good.
I can look back and worry about the future based on my past. Or I can look back and thank God or the universe or whichever supreme being you believe in for giving me the opportunities to live.
