PONDER on THIS for Thursday, May 19th, 2011 by John St. Augustine in LIVING AN UNCOMMON LIFE

“Life is not fair…There are going to be times that test every fiber of your being. People of character are fully aware that they may not be able to control the events of their lives, but they are in charge of their response to those events. Life is set up as a growing process. Every new season brings growth, and humans are not outside the cycle of change (even though we would like to think so). Instead of whining when something comes your way that doesn’t fit your idea of how things should be (of course, a little pressure release is allowed), face it head-on, stare it down, and see it for what it is. Character is built on the hard times of life, not the easy ones, so ducking punches actually can make you weaker, not stronger.”
