STOP AND THINK – Life is not the way it’s supposed to be … It’s the way it is … The way we cope with it is what makes the difference. (Virginia Satir, 20th century American author and social worker)

All of us have wished sometime that life were different—that circumstances or events had been more to our liking. But, as they say today, “It is what it is.” What we can’t change we must learn to live with or, as Satir says, “cope” with it. Again, it’s a matter of attitude and choice. We must choose to accept and cope with whatever in life we can’t control.

22 You were taught … to be made new in the attitude of your minds. (Ephesians 4:22-23)
