There are things in life we can control, that control us, and that seem out of control. We can be charging ahead, squeezed into a corner, or simply cruising along with the currents. In whatever situation we find ourselves, we still have our free will.
Your circumstances may be real, good or bad, of your own making or forced upon you, but the attitude you take is what determines its impact on your life.
When a change is needed, if you remember the key is in a change in attitude, it is only an instant away.
“What you need to know about the past is that no matter what has happened, it has all worked together to bring you to this very moment. And this is the moment you can choose to make everything new. Right now.” ~Anonymous
