Feeling philosophical

The way I see it, there are only two things you can do: focus on the disappointments in your life and live in despair and frustration, or keep your eyes on your blessings and throw yourself into the life that was given to you. You can choose to dwell in your past mistakes and be convinced that they have scarred you for life, or you can choose to learn from these mistakes and use these lessons to live your life better.

You can choose to say no to opportunities that you just don't really like, or you can grab the opportunity, try it out and turn it into the best it can be for you.

You can choose to settle for what you have, or strive to become better and better each day. This doesn't mean being greedy though - it means being filled with hope.

You can choose to dwell in your insecurities and give yourself over to depression, or you can grab life and take a big bite out of it.

Take your work seriously, but take your life and yourself lightly. No fall is so bad that you won't be able to get up and brush yourself off; all you need is the right attitude.
