Day 24: 365 Days of Motivation for Widows

“When you can’t change the direction of the winds—adjust your sails.”
–H. Jackson Brown Jr.

During a time when you are struggling to get out of bed and take a shower all in the same day, this might be hard to hear. Or maybe you can do that, but are unable to face the outside world. Where ever you are on your journey, please take this to heart, in the spirit it was intended.

Sometimes we create our own destiny, and sometimes we are a product of someone else creating their destiny. Other times still, there is just no rhyme or reason for bad things happening. The truth is, it doesn’t matter why it happened. What matters is 1) once it happens there is no way to go back for a re-do and 2) the only thing to do is to find a way to be okay. You have to find a way to be okay. You can’t change what life dropped at your door, the only thing–the absolute only thing–you can change is how you handle it and how you use it to shape the rest of your life.
