Every single minute of the day you have a choice. You can choose what to eat, what to say and how to treat people. But most importantly, you can choose how to respond when things don’t go your way. You are in control of how you respond when life tests your patience, your courage and your resolve.
Pain and suffering are two separate responses. Pain has a time-limit. Suffering can continue forever. Why? Because suffering is created in your mind; it is controlled by your perception of your environment and circumstances. Control your thoughts, control your suffering.
