Easier said than done oh wise one, is what I have to say to that quote. Life is full of bumps, turns, and the unexpected and its easy to get pulled down into a negative spiral. The proverbial crap is what I try not to let myself get sucked into but somedays its just hard. The negative elephant in the room is the unknown for me. The questions that are constantly unanswered are what can eat you alive. A very dear friend once told me “As humans we have a natural tendency to try and control everything but the fact is we can’t control everything.” I have thought a lot about that statement and it rings very true to me.
I have come to realize that all we can control is our reaction to the situation that may leave us in the dark. When I feel myself in the spiral I read some amazing quotes from some awesome folks. Today I feel inspired by Helen Keller.
Everything has its wonders, even in darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I am in, therein to be content. ~ Helen Keller
What do you do make sure you don’t get pulled into the negative crap?
