Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it. (Dennis P. Kimbro, business teacher and writer)

Not everything that happens to us in our life experience is good or pleasant. Disease, accidents, mistreatment—they all occur in everyone’s life at one time or another. We can blame those misfortunes for our failure to move on, or we can regard them as opportunities to learn how to cope and to move ahead to better things.

I applied my heart to what I observed and learned a lesson from what I saw (Proverbs 24:32). It was good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn your decrees (Psalm 119:71).
