It is difficult suggesting to someone to MOVE FORWARD without having that one’s PERSPECTIVE on the issue of contention. Notably to MOVE FORWARD beyond the loss or diminishing of a quality that one possesses. An article from F. Bruni is uplifting in many ways. So I thought it would be of value to you, to SHARE some of his thoughts. Hopefully they will resonate with some of you. His main message is to always MOVE FORWARD, FORWARD, FORWARD.
While you have no control over much of what befalls you, you do have plenty of control over your PERSPECTIVE on it and your attitude on it. That is, to MOVE FORWARD, FORWARD, FORWARD.
You can rage pointlessly at the lot you have drawn and the hardships you are confronting or you can take note of, and PRIDE in, the way you are taking them in stride and MOVING FORWARD, FORWARD, FORWARD.
We are a BOUNDLESS SPECIES AT ADAPTING. But we only learn that when we are forced to adapt. We come to a fork in the road, and we can choose between wallowing in self-pity or taking a good hard look around and MOVE FORWARD, FORWARD, FORWARD.
Bruni says that we also should cope by focusing on the good days and remember that the bad ones are never permanent. Bruni’s article teaches to PERCEIVE BETTER in one’s own situation as well as the circumstance of other individual’s difficult misfortune. A demanding, but such a very necessary adjustment to accomplish.
EVERYONE MUST MAKE THE EFFORT TO MOVE FORWARD, FORWARD, FORWARD. ADAPTING IS ALWAYS WITHIN US ALL. THERE IS ALWAYS A HIGHER ROAD TO TAKE.
