Life happens. Anything can happen anytime. Our freedom lies is what we do with that happening.
Depending on how you respond, an event can make you weak or strong. You can choose to complain or strive to find a solution. You can get angry or choose to forgive and love. You can choose to procrastinate or choose to move pro-actively.
The freedom lies in choosing.
Look at your life now – differentiate between what is happening versus how and what you are choosing. If you have chosen to get entangled in happenings then you are stuck.
