Technically, this is not a new post... I'm just sharing a blog I love and what I'm learning through it - what I want to remember from it:
"But it’s not those occupational demands or our circumstances that make our days crazy or calm. I’m beginning to realize that peace and simplicity is a choice, not something that is handed to you—or not.
It’s in the attitudes I choose, the inspiration I uncover or ignore, the priorities and thoughts and conversations I pick to fill those moments and those hours that make the majority of my days, and—essentially—who I am."
Identity and knowing Who's you are - Who you belong to - makes all the difference. I learned this simple truth as a 19 year old study-abroad student in the South of France:
You can be miserable anywhere - under the best of circumstances. You can happy anywhere - in the worst of circumstances.
Contentment is a choice.
I'll leave you with this from Pinterest (my new fave):
Knowing who you are - and Who's you are - makes all the difference in the world.
