“All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.”
~ Henry Ellis

Many of the things that trouble us are not nearly as troubling as we make them out to be. Much of what frustrates us is frustrating primarily because we have chosen to see it that way.

What if we decided to see things differently? What if, instead of being so desperately troubled by all the troubles, we could simply accept them, deal with them, and move forward in our own way?

“One by One…Line them up and knock them down.”

Certainly there are very real and important challenges that we must give our time and serious attention to. Yet how many of the other, more trivial things, keep us feeling down simply because we’ve blown them out of perspective?

Every so often as we go through the day, let’s take just a moment to remind ourselves  how truly blessed we are. When we catch our self’s feeling sorry for ourselves, choose to turn it around and feel sincerely thankful instead.

Even the difficulties remind us of how fully alive we are. Alive in this world of endless possibilities is a very good thing to be.

Rise above the troubles. From a perspective of gratitude, we will see most of them are not nearly as troubling as we once thought.

“Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith.”

~ Henry Ward Beecher
