Evaluating Life and Thriving

Posted by Second Chance to Live on September 7, 2013

Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to have you around my table. In life I have found that I see things as they are interpreted by my experience. Consequently, I am challenged to examine my interpretation of my experiences. Below are several quotes that encourage me to consider my interpretation (s) of my experience (s). By doing so I am empowered by my experiences.

“We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are.” Anais Nin

What this quote helps me to consider is that things may not be as they are, but how I perceive them to be, but how I interpret these things. Consequently, I can re-evaluate what is happening in my life.

“If you do not like some thing, change it. If you can not change it, change the way you think about it.” Robert Louis Stevenson

With my understanding, I can change the way in which I think about those things. By doing so I can consider the possibilities that exist in my choice to look at things in a different way.

“It does not matter where you’ve been, it only matters where you’re going.” Brian Tracey

In life, I have found that it is not as important as what happened to me, as what what I do with what happened to me. With my realization, I can seek to be empowered by what happens (ned) to me.

“It’s never too late to be who you might have been.” George Eliot

I am thankful that I no longer need to see myself as a victim of my circumstances. I am thankful that I can instead view my circumstances as a way to build me up, not to keep me down.

“Imperfect action is better than perfect inaction.” Henry Truman

My experience has taught me to change the way that I see my efforts. By doing so, I have been able to stop fighting against myself. By doing so, I have been able to see that there is no such thing as failure.
