“When we make peace with life events, even when things don’t go the way we want, we exhibit grace. When we manage stressful situations with humor, we exhibit grace. When we are accepting of others, we exhibit grace. Grace is not about physical beauty or having a ballerina’s poise. It is composed of generosity, forgiveness, and equanimity in the face of trying times.”
Putting life’s challenges into perspective.
You can’t let an event in your life define who you are. It’s not what happens to you but what you do; how you respond to what happens to you that becomes part of who you are, defining your character to yourself and others.
Living life on life’s terms is not always easy or easily understood. In times of confusion it’s important to seek calm, and trust instead.
“Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.”
~ Martin Luther King Jr
What matters in life is the motive behind our approach; how we treat one another and the messages we send through that treatment.
What matters is what we learn; that we learn, in order to affect change.
