No one can make you happy, mad or sad.
Situations don't dictate reactions.
Reactions are dictated by our thoughts.
You have more control over any given situation than you give yourself credit for.
It is what you make it.
Remember, God first. However, God gives us a mind and free will to make decisions. It is those decisions which shape our lives. Personal responsibility is key. Changing your mindset from a defeatist one of "It is what it is" to an empowering one of "It is what you make it" is the first step. With God's guidance and believing in and living by the mindset of "It is what you make it" will help you gain the empowerment you need and wings which will allow you to soar as high and as far as you want to go. Stay Empowered.
