As I work with many people going through losses or life transitions, I have been able to see the effect our attitude has on how we handle the situation.

Some people face a small problem and find themselves hopeless, afraid, or with no motivation. Other people face huge losses and are able to withstand their pain and even become better persons.

What is the difference between these two groups of people?

I have to say it is their attitude. Although some people dwell on the negative and the pain, others use their faith, hope, and strength to keep them going. Instead of focusing on the darkness that may surround them, they choose to use their inner resources and turn on the light.

To which group of people do you belong to?

I wish you a beautiful day,
