In life, business and relationships, hard times are as common as the air we breathe. Yet, having learned that fact doesn’t make them any easier to handle or deal with.
I consider myself a mentally strong individual, well most of the time at least. I feel like I’m well equipped with enough tools in my emotional bag of tricks to help deter and keep negative thoughts at bay.
Somehow, even with all the tools I might possess, life finds a way to smash me against a brick wall, bringing me down to my knees with an overwhelming sense of powerlessness.
Hard truth is, this is just life. I’ve got hardly any control over what it throws at me. The good news is; I have absolute and utter control over how I respond to it.
