On Unfortunate Events
When unfortunate events happen to us, they simply happen. Although we have some influence in what comes our way, we don't usually have complete control over external events.
But what we do after is up to us. Do we remain where we are, as we are, recipient of ill fate? Or do we work on turning things around? Do we turn adversity into training? Do we turn mistakes into stepping stones?
Giving up and getting back up are both your choices. Which will it be?
