My grandmother often said, “It’s not how much money you make, it’s what you do with the money.” Isn’t that always the case—not what you have but what you do with what you have?

Attitude and action weigh more heavily than the resource alone.

I keep thinking of this.

How do you handle unsavory information?
Information that dampens your mood
Saddens your imagination.

This wasn’t what I expected.
Why didn’t anyone tell me?
Why didn’t they predict this very moment three years ago, so I could prepare my emotions to react with ease?

It isn’t what you have—though what you have is amazing, nice, comfortable.
It is what you do with what you have

How will you be in this moment?
Handle it?
Live through it?
Live in spite of it?

I assure you, it’s not what you have.

It’s how you are.
And, for that matter—how are you?
