#wisdomwednesday Sometimes we don't really know why things happen the way they do and there are a lot of things that are out of our control. Even though there are things or situations out of our control, they're definitely a lot that we do have control over. Things such as our attitude, how we react to the situations, how we persevere through them, and how we overcome them.

When it comes to our attitude, we have the control of how we feel and how we want to react. A lot of the times we can be upset about things, but that won't help the situation whatsoever, most of the time it just makes it worse. Having a positive mindset, trying to make the most of it, having the perspective of a glass half full instead of half empty so to say, makes every negative situation a little better.

Having a positive perspective allows us to keep moving forward in the right direction. One of my favorite quotes ever is "it wouldn't be given to you if you can handle it". Difficult situations allow us to learn, grow, to become stronger and wiser. Everyone has bumps in the road, everyone has bumps along the journey, but when we make it to our destination, when we make it to where we want to go, that's what makes the journey so beautiful.

It is also important to remember that nobody ever has bad days, there might be bad moments within those days, but those moments help us get to where we want to go. When things get tough, it's important not to give up. If we give up, then it's guaranteed that it will never happen.

Keep going!
