“I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.”
~ Jimmy Dean
We don’t have control of all the circumstances in our lives, but we do have a choice about how we respond to them. We can let people and situations deter us from pursuing out dreams, but we can also find a way to turn even what seems like a negative circumstance into something that will move us toward our goal. We may be pushed in a direction we didn’t expect, but if we make the most of it, we may come upon new places that will change our end result for the better. These new places may provide some of the most wonderful circumstances and events of our lives, and without having altered our course, we would never have visited them.
