What can we learn from this story?
Things in life don’t always go how we want them to. In fact, many times they don’t. But we don’t have to let that make us feel bad inside. We can’t control outside events, but we can choose how we feel about them.
Sometimes we may have to admit – I don’t like this, and it’s okay that I don’t like it. But even though I’m not happy, I’m still going to choose gratitude. I’m going to focus on what I can be thankful for.
