My Aunt Dondi shared a book with me in which these words were written and I found much truth in them.
“THERE ARE THREE central values in life- the experiential, or that which happens to us; the creative, or that which we bring into existence; and the attitudinal, or our response in difficult circumstances. The highest of these is attitudinal. In other words, what matters most is how we respond to what we experience in life.
~Stephen R. Covey
