April is here again and it’s time for this year’s A to Z Challenge. This year, my theme is motivational quotes. Each Monday to Saturday throughout April I will be posting a motivational quote each day starting with the letters A through to Z.
It’s traditional through the challenge to keep posts short and sweet, so that’s what I’ll be doing. Just a quick explanation of why I chose each quote and what it means to me.
Day 12 – L
“Life is a grind stone. Whether it grinds you down or polishes you up is up to you”
This is a fantastic quote which illustrates how our mind set affects us. We can’t control everything that happens around us. What we can control is our reaction to it.
So when something happens that wasn’t part of the plan, we can let it get us down, or we can find a way to move past it, or perhaps find a way to make it fit with the plan.
How we react to things that are beyond our control is a big influence on how we feel mentally. It is hard to be happy when we let the negative affect us and bring us down. If we find a way to shrug it off and look for the positives, we stand a much better chance of achieving true happiness.
Do you let things get you down or do you rise up to meet life’s challenges? Let me know in the comments 🙂
Don’t forget to check back every Monday to Saturday to see the next motivational quote!
