Nature arms each man with some faculty which enables him to do easily some feat impossible to any other.

How will it affect you?

How will this affect you, and how will that affect you? That is completely for you to decide.

What happens outside of you has an influence. Yet it is what happens within you that has the final say.

You can choose to be brought down by the worst aspects of the situation. Or you can choose to be lifted up by the best positive qualities of that very same situation.

What do you think about the possibilities of this day? How do you feel about the circumstances you’re in?

What you think, the way you feel, the things you believe combine to create the filter through which you experience life. What passes through that filter is exactly what you allow to pass through.

You cannot change what already is, yet you can decide precisely what you will take from it and what you will do with it. No matter what happens, you have the power to make of it what you will.

— Ralph Marston
