Whatever happens, just happens Once we realise that no happening is inherently good or bad - although there may be grief or pain or a heavy heart - we begin to diminish suffering through releasing ourselves from the shackles of craving.
Our perception is the difference between endurance and embrace; our reaction can plunge us into a downward spiral or raise us up towards contentment. So make the best out of every situation. Be ambitious and driven whilst welcoming and accepting everything that's in place right now. It has been sent to shape you, after all. You just work hard and enjoy the journey.
