Motivational Quote - The good ended happily and the bad unhappily. That is what fiction means.

SparkPeople's Comments

Why do bad things happen to good people? That’s the age-old question, and the answer is simply – because they do. This is just a fact of life. So many of us focus on the following thought, “Why did this happen?” and never deal with the situation. As hard as it might be, try to eliminate this from your mind. No matter how many times you ask, it does not change whatever negative thing has happened. Instead, try to deal with the situation. Ask, “What can I do about this?” and then do it. Life is not about how to avoid getting knocked down; it’s about when you get knocked down, finding a way to get back up.

Each person is in control of their own thoughts. I find focusing on the present, rather than the past or future helps me realize I have a choice where my thoughts are concerned. I can think "Oh, my back is really hurting me this morning" or I can choose to think " I am grateful I can get up and walk to my bathroom." Choosing positve affirmations and thoughts leads to less stress and more serenity. I know. I have tried it. I practice this daily all the time when I find myself sad or letting my mind wander to negative thoughts.
