“Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be.” ~Wayne Dyer
Learning to accept life as it actually is instead of how we think it “should” be may be one of the hardest lessons there is to learn, but it’s the only way to peace. Accepting life as it is doesn’t mean we can’t work to change things for the better; it just means that we are able to do so from a place of peace instead of from a place of resistance to reality.

“Whatever happens to you belongs to you. Make it yours. Feed it to yourself even if it feels impossible to swallow. Let it nurture you because it will.” ~Cheryl Strayed
I love this idea of taking ownership of whatever happens to me. I may not have chosen it. I may not have any control over it. I may not like it. But I can choose to digest it to make sure it nurtures me and feeds my growth anyway.
