Quote of the Day: Weil

quote29“We must not wish for the disappearance of our troubles but for the grace to transform them.”
~ Simone Weil

When we allow ourselves to become victims of our circumstances, we forfeit the power we have in controlling the directions our lives take.

It is not the circumstances that dictate how we react but rather our attitudes and perspectives concerning the circumstances. Accepting personal responsibility for our attitudes and perspectives and knowing that we choose them is the key to changing your circumstances for the better.

We must also realize that challenges, though stressful and tough to overcome, are opportunities for growth and learning. Instead of wishing for things to get easier, we should open ourselves up to trudging through to the other side and emerging stronger and wiser.
