Life is always throwing us curve balls; it is just part of life.
We ALWAYS have a choice in how we handle the experience/s and how we are going to solve/ resolve it.
- Accept the problem
- Change It
- Leave it
How we respond to any given situation will vary with each experience, there is never a one-size-fits-all solution.
Figure out which solution brings you closest to being at peace and go with it. Trying to maintain a peaceful state of being for me, is paramount!
This does not mean that I turn a blind eye to the experience. All of us do have to eventually process the experience it one way or the other. But I recommend that we do so with a focus on achieving / maintaining peace in our life.
Unfortunately, we often end up stagnant in the experience relieving it over and over and over without resolving it one way or another, this is a long way from that peacefulness I refer to.
To decide if you should "Accept it", "Change it", or simply "Leave it" you must look at the experience because, “what you resist persists, and what you look at will eventually fall away” if you allow it to do so.
Ask yourself, will this even matter a year from now? If not, leave it behind. If you think it will matter, then work towards changing it into a solution rather than the problem it currently is.
If you aren't sure what to do, accepting it could work as long as doing so brings you back to a more peaceful state of being.
YOU get to choose, so, CHOOSE WISELY!
