You all know when I read something that inspires me, I have to share it with you all! Last week blogger Amber Rae (one of my faves by the way, check her out at heyamberrae.com) shared this quote in one of her posts, so simple yet so powerful.
“No troubles, only adventures”
There are so many people who are stressed about situations the can’t control, people they can’t control, and a life that is out of control. This statement has become my new mantra, I am determined to face life head on and I am not in the business of trying to change every single situation but to change my thinking about how I handle things and embrace every situation as an opportunity for an adventure. In life ideally we want everything to be simple and easy, but it is adventures that strengthen, build, and teach us valuable life lessons in the long run. If I hadn’t taken some adventures, I wouldn’t be in the space that I am in, and I am sure if you evaluate your life you would say the same thing.
So when life gets a bit crazy, think of it as an adventure. Life is about perception. How I perceive things, determines how I react and at this point in life I can’t give my attention to every situation that comes along, otherwise I will take my focus off of the my true adventure. Want to control your stress? Start controlling your sight and start seeing life’s situations as adventures.
