“Some things in life are out of your control. You can make it a party or a tragedy.”
— Nora Roberts
Throughout the ages, many wise people have said this same thing in differing ways, that you need to accept your experiences, both the good and bad, and move forward. The truth is you don’t need to choose to accept anything because you don’t have a choice. You are moving forward one way or another. This life is like a roller-coaster; once you are strapped-in and the ride has started, you aren’t getting off. Now you can wail and thrash about in a panic, which is no fun at all, or you can just put your hands in the air and give-in to what will surely be a ride of surprising turns, twists, climbs and falls. Just remember how lucky you are to have a ticket and try to enjoy the ride.
“Pause and remember– If you are reading this you are blessed to be alive and today is a gift. Tomorrow is not guaranteed. Don’t hesitate to forgive, hug and love those dear to you!”
