“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” ~JRR Tolkien (from The Fellowship of the Ring)
It’s so easy to spend our time wishing we were facing some other set of circumstances, living in some other time and place, or had made some other big choice in life that would have led us to a different situation, but they only thing we can decide upon is what to do with the life we have here and now just as it really is.
Facing what is and dealing with it as it is in a proactive way will get us much farther along than ignoring the situation.
What do you need to decide today about the time that is given you?
