“Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.”
-Charles R. Swindoll
After reading this quote I kind of started thinking how many times I’ve said, or seen someone say, “Today was such a bad/hard day, can’t it just be tomorrow already.” But why wait for the next day hoping that tomorrow is better. What if you are come across the same issues? Instead, why not think of what problems you’re faced with and try to change it in order to end your day on a positive note. Even if it takes the rest of the day to think of what we can do different the next day; this can help us avoid having another bad day for the same reasons. This doesn’t really include unchangeable circumstances such as death, or natural disasters. Those events in our lives will always make days harder. This specific quote reminds me of when people say “learn from your mistakes” because if we never take the time to evaluate where we went wrong, then we will never stop making the same mistakes. So don’t take your next bad day, setback, or obstacle as a reason to want the day to end, but instead as a chance to grow and be able to make the most of your days.
