The Choice of Circumstances

A car with a flat tire.

You don’t always get to chose your circumstances, but you always get to chose how you react to them.

You might not be ready for a life-changing event; you can either let emotions overwhelm you, or you can find a way to deal with it.

You might not be ready for a year-long quarantine; you can either be frustrated because of it, or you can choose to be present with the people you love.

You might not be ready to get fired; you can either wallow in your self-pity, or you can sharpen-up your portfolio and find a better position.

Choose to see the positive and make the most of it. Much better than an alternative of stress, frustration, anger, and discouragement.
