Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, Philippians 2:5
Life happens…and most of it is completely outside of our control, yet we do have 100% complete control in some very important areas:
We choose how we react and respond to life’s happenings;
We also choose the attitude we bring into and carry out of life’s happenings.
We choose to use the happenings of life as opportunities to help us grow up, or as excuses to make us grumble;
We choose to become bitter, broken down people, or a bigger, better people.
Our reactions, responses, and attitudes are totally up to us – nothing else and no one else.
