Response to life

Those who have been trampled by life are easy to spot by either their constant complaining or their relentless optimism.
 
Usually those who express the most beauty in words, art, music and actions are also struggling the most, or have suffered the most pain. It’s a survival reaction to get away from the hurt and move on to a better place. It’s like being dragged down to the dark depths of the ocean of despair. You can either give up and drown in sorrow or swim hard for the surface and the light.
 
No matter what happens around us or to us, we are our biggest influence…
 
Watch your thoughts, they become words.
Watch your words, they become actions.
Watch your actions they become habits
Watch your habits, they become your character.
Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.
 
You can’t always control what happens in life, but you can create the atmosphere of your reality. – Coov
