What could I say to you that would be of value, except that perhaps you seek too much, that as a result of your seeking you cannot find. Herman Hesse
Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have...life itself. Walter Anderson
Life sucks, and then you die is an incomplete sentence. It’s the wrong side of the paradox to take because meaning in life comes from what we each do. Life just is, and we are all unique artists with the ability to create our own masterpiece. If positive and negative are two sides of a coin, we don’t have to flip it and leave it to chance.
Well said; we can't always keep bad things from happening to us, but we can control how we react to them. A lot of people might think with my health issues because of the cancer, that I would be angry, depressed, and crying all the time, but that is no way to live life. I just try to be happy with all the blessings I do have, and live my life the best I can despite the cancer. 1610 days ago
