Thoughts for Thursday


I have had this quote hanging in my office since I became a counselor.  It is one of my favorites.  So true.  So wise.

We cannot always choose the circumstances of our lives, but we can choose how we face those circumstances.  Your past, your pain, your disappointment do not have to define you.  Instead, you can let that pain or that grief or that sorrow shape you.   You can choose how you are changed by your circumstances.

What are you working on today?  Are you working on being miserable or are you working on being strong?

Take care!

Jen Williams - Amazing quote. Thank you for sharing and inspiring!

Stephanie - great thought to ponder on today. thanks Mazi. I really love your posts!

Kristen - One of my faves, too!!

karen - I love this, and it’s so true. I spent a very hard week last week in a deep depression and I did everything I could to get out of it, because it’s just as hard to be in it, than to get out of it, so the battle is equal, and if your going to fight a battle, you may as well fight the battle to get out.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful quote.. LOVE it
