It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.” ~Epictetus


It’s almost guaranteed that life will throw you a tough time or two. You never know when it’ll come, but there is one thing you can control:  your response. 

I’ve often wanted to retaliate when wronged or hurt, avoid life when scared or unsure, but that just makes me feel worse. 

When I respond with mercy & forgiveness when wronged or faith & hope when scared, my heart is less heavy. I can be proud of my actions.
