Life is 10% of what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it.

–         John Maxwell 

Thank God for inspirational women and men (like John Maxwell) who are courageous enough to put themselves out there and share from their heart so that we can all learn and grow from their experiences. 

Have you ever caught yourself complaining about how life dealt you a bad deck, or gotten frustrated with the way something turned out, and then found yourself giving into your emotions and sulking or getting angry or depressed about it?

Just remember to keep the quote above in mind… Life is truly what you make it. 

Be mindful about making the BEST of every situation you find yourself in.  Without a doubt life comes with disappointments, upsetting surprises, and even violations at times, but the truth is that in the midst of these uncontrollable circumstances you have control over how you will react, and the outlook you choose to hold.
