Faith Filled Friday

What does another person‘s mood, tone of voice, negative energy or weird circumstances have to do with my course of action today? Nothing, unless I decide otherwise.
I have learned I don’t have to react just because I have been provoked, and I don’t have to take harsh words to heart. I have to remember responding to situations is like talking to a child who sometimes doesn’t know how to let their feelings out- that some people are in pain and I have to show compassion. I sometimes have to show compassion to myself so I don’t flip out- and then find humor in the day’s ongoing situations…
When I have a compassionate and open mind to adversity, I can get through whatever the day brings in a way that is not a challenge but a way to make it more exciting.
