A friend of mine was recently let go from her long time career. It was a shock to everyone who heard the news. We never know when life can take us in a new direction. I've been talking to my 11 year old son about how we can't control the things happening around us, but we can control our attitude. When we choose to not let external things happening around us determine our happiness and inner joy, there is a freedom in that. Yes, there is disappointment. Yes, bad things will happen. Yes, life can really suck sometimes, but it is a daily practice of choosing how we will respond to everything happening in our lives. When we realize it's up to us to choose, why not choose to blossom?
