It seems to me that over the course of days, weeks, months, and years I experience waves of struggles and successes. And I suspect that is the same for us all.
Certainly, the magnitude of the roller coaster ride changes for each of us—some have it easy while others struggle to hang on by their fingertips.
But, regardless of where we are, it appears that it is our attitudes and outlooks that determine how we react and respond to life's ups and downs.
When I am fortunate enough to meet someone I would describe as happy-go-lucky, my first thought is they've led a charmed life. Their problems are few and their successes many. Digging deeper I inevitably discover their rates of struggles and successes are about the same as mine.
It seems to be attitude.
Something you expected doesn't go according to plan? How you deal with the situation and yourself seems to make all the difference in the world.
We all have a song in our hearts. Sometimes we just have to dig a little deeper to hear it.
