"I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me, but it's hard to stay mad when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once and it's too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst. And then I remember to relax...and stop trying to hold on to it. And then it flows through me like rain, and I can't feel anything but gratitude...for every single moment of my stupid little life. You have no idea what I'm talking about I'm sure, but don't worry. You will someday."
~ Lester Burnham played by Kevin Spacey in American Beauty
We are born into this Life and many things happen. Somethings we have control over, other things we don't. Some things we see as good, other things we see as bad. Later we may change our perspective altogether regarding some or all of it... or we may not. Some people will use what happens to them to love, learn and grow, others will use what happens to them to reinforce their fears, egos or overall unhappiness. It's your choice.
Live. Experience. Relax. Breathe. Let Go. (Repeat)
All the best,
