This is by far one of my favorite quotes. Basically, it says when something bad happens, you have 3 choices:
1. You can let it define you.
2. Let it destroy you.
3. Let it strengthen you.
We have all had something bad happen to us. Maybe something bad is happening to you right now. Whether you are suffering from an illness or lack of money or you are just just plain ol’ heart-broken, you cannot let this “bad thing” define you and you certainly cannot let it destroy you.
By doing nothing, and wallowing in your sorrows, you are allowing the problem to consume you.
Remember, you have the power to be happy. You do have the power to make choices. Choices that will make you feel better about yourself and the situation. You might not see it right away but doing nothing will certainly not help you at all. It is choice number three, that we must all strive for.
We must learn from our mistakes, from our pain and suffering and become that much stronger for it. When you have doubts, remember that you were given this life because you are strong enough to live it!
