How you look at something is everything. Life is all about perspective.
Not long ago, I was remembering a particularly hard time I experienced. That period of my life seemed to go on forever. And yet, looking back, it was only a few months. But how I looked at the challenges I experienced at the time, made what I was going through seem harder. I could have done myself a favor and shortened my difficult days by changing my perception.
Yes, I grew and I learned a lot, but In the end, we get to choose how many long we will stay in a class.
What is the lesson? Change how you see what you go through and you can get through it a whole lot faster.
