Note to Self: When Life Knocks You Down

Note to Self | So She Wrote

It's up to you, to decide how to take the punch

You can sit there, moan, cry and worry, or you can take control of the situation and steer it in a different direction. It's up to you. 

Get off of the roller coaster, stop succumbing to whatever it is that's hurting your soul and simply adjust your sails. You can steer anything and everything in the direction that you wish, so long as you understand that nothing has power over you unless you allow it to.

It's okay to be stressed and sometimes feel defeated, so long as you understand that at some point you have to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again (yes, that is a reference to Nat King Cole's Pick Yourself Up).

A reminder to me, and you - when you fall into the rut remember these three things:
Positive vibes, deep breaths, big smiles.
...and you can make it through anything!
