I got some news today that I just didn’t like. I did everything I could to plan for, and create a different outcome. But as life works out sometimes, it was beyond my control, and that is that. So, as much as I wanted to have a meltdown, whine, stomp around my house, tell the whole world how it’s just not fair and I don’t deserve this outcome, I did none of those (and let me reitterate that I reeeeeeeeallllllly wanted to).
Instead, I CHOSE to remember the story I wrote about my friend Stephanie the other day. I CHOSE to remember that my crappy outcome will be resolved, and it’s not sickness, death, or so many other bad things. I CHOSE to handle my situation with grace and positivity. I CHOSE to just keep moving forward with a good attitude.
With that, I got out my camera and took a few pictures of one of my favorite things in the world, my dog Rampage. THAT, is what I chose to do instead. And I plan to make many more choices along these lines in the future. I hope you follow suit too!
