You have the Power!
I have always liked the line, "With power comes great responsibility." What if I suggested that you have the power to determine what life will be like for you. This means that if you choose to interact with life negatively, then life will be hard for you. This also means that if you choose to interact with life with positivity and hope, then life will be easier and less stressful. The reality is - the choice is yours. This is terrible and fantastic! It's terrible because if you choose to react negatively and suffer then, there is no one to blame for your experiences but yourself. It's fantastic because if you choose to make a different choice and react with hope and positivity and gratefulness, then you are also to blame! You have the power to create life however you want to live it! Perception is everything!
