Life is 10% of what happens to me and 90% how I react to it .......Charles R Swindoll (+1)

We shouldn't undermine our impact on others, what we do can significantly improve or crap on someone's life.

Most of his quotes are very religious, but I do agree with this one: “We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.”

Swindoll is a Christian Pastor. So, it's not surprising the things he says would be religious. [Being a Christian is not a bad thing Will.]

I didn't mean to give you that impression. I think he is a smart man, but I get more from this quote than many of the others that I read. ;)
says Will_Janitor on Nov 22nd 17 (#2695878)
Got it. Thanks.

It's strange but from hundreds of quotes I have seen and used to post to friends on SH , only a few have struck a chord with me and this is one of them.
says Darkest_Serenity on Nov 22nd 17 (#2695962)
Totally agree. Take the emotions out and your reaction will be much better received.

It's tough finding that balance between dealing with a situation calmly and it coming across as apathy at times
says Darkest_Serenity on Nov 22nd 17 (#2695966)
Yes it is ...

Oh man Nazaré Portugal. They can go up to 60 feet. Great pic. love it. Thanks!
says SynysterGates on Nov 22nd 17 (#2696056)
That guy is surfing a 100 ft wave according to the writeup. :)
says Will_Janitor on Nov 22nd 17 (#2696066)
That's very possible.There are about 5 areas where the waves can get as high as 100 feet. Jaws/Peahi Maui,
Teahupoo Tahiti, Costes banks. Mavericks, Santa Cruz and Nazare Portugal.

Definitely so Ser, I also probably spend 10% of my life feeling sorry for myself and 90% of my life just cracking on with it. 乂º◡º乂

I hear that
says Darkest_Serenity on Nov 22nd 17 (#2695970)
music always calms my sometimes Stormy Soul , brings me clarity of vision and allows me to truly see things how they really are. *blinkers off*

Oh I let my emotions get the best of me most of the time and I know this and it is something that I am working really hard on. I am trying to talk things through instead of getting pissed, walking away, hiding, breaking something or burning something to a crisp. Not an easy task but I am getting there.

Life can sometimes be a test of endurance babe
says Darkest_Serenity on Nov 24th 17 (#2696705)
It sure is
says Lil_Princess on Nov 24th 17 (#2696751)
There are moments I let online people get to me and then I remember I'm an idiot for caring, and it stops.
