Changing the Things We can Change
Posted by Second Chance to Live on September 21, 2012
Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. In life I have found that life does not always look as I would like it too my friend. In life, I have found that the way that I deal with how life is determines how I experience my life. Many things are out of my control. My acceptance of that reality helps me to be able to take advantage of what is in my control. What is in my control is how I take advantage of what is in my control.
“The happiest people don’t have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.” Author Unknown
In my experience, I have found that I don’t have to have the best of everything to be happy. Instead, I can be grateful for what I do have and by doing so take advantage of what has been given to me. In my experience, I have found that I can choose to look at life as an adventure — filled with endless opportunities and possibilities. In my experience, I have found that I change my mind and do things differently to change my experience in life.
Regardless of your lot in life, you can build something beautiful on it. Zig Ziglar
In my experience, I do not have to like the reality that I have to live on a fixed income — on SSDI – because I am unable to stay gainfully employed in full or part time jobs. In my experience, I do not have to like having to jump through hoops each year because of my housing situation. In my experience, I do not have to like the reality that I do not have money to participate in activates that my peers are able to do at 55 years of age.
“Things work out best for those who make the best of how things work out.” John Wooden
In my experience, I have found that if I do not like the way things are in my life that I change those things or change the way that I think about those things. In my experience, I have found that although I may not like my lot in life, I can still build some thing beautiful on my lot. In my experience, I have found that although I may not like how things have turned out for me, I can choose to make the best out of how things have turned out for me.
“If you do not like some thing, change it. If you can not change it, change the way you think about it.” Mary Englebreit
In the event that you do not like the way that things are in your life, let me encourage you with what I have learned through my experience. Although, we may not like our lots in life, we can build some thing beautiful on our lots. Although things may be difficult in our lives, we can make the best out of the way things are in our lives. Although we may not like something, we can work on changing it or changing the way we think about it.
