Life is 10% wha…

Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you deal with it.

This quote is presently my motto. I keep it in mind so that my chronic pain doesn’t swallow me up. It reminds me that I have to fight through the pain and the subsequent depression in order to have a joy filled and meaningful life. It helps me not to give up when I’m at my lowest; and to fight harder when I’m at my strongest. It reminds me that, no matter how bad things get, my reaction can increase or lessen the blow to myself and those I am close to. It helps me to be the best I can be according to whatever circumstance I am in; and reminds me not to overreact.
