The Common Element of Everything That Has Ever Happened To You
Just like the common element of everything that has ever happened to me is ME.
Sometimes, admist the rotten situations and unfortunate events, we must look inside of ourselves to take responsibility of the actions we’ve taken and decisions we have made that may have led us there. We must forgive ourselves for those decisions, acknowledge our mistakes, and learn from them.
Of course, there are circumstances in life we encounter that we have no control over. People make terrible choices to do dreadful things to others all of the time. But what we do have control over is our response to these people and the hardships we encounter. The aftermath of bleak occurrences is where the light may seem most dim, but never forget that the ball is back in your court.
Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and keep moving forward. Be your own knight in shining armor.
The Lord is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.
