Mentality Monday, weekly inspiration: "You get to define the terms of your life." - Cheryl Strayed, Tiny Beautiful Things

The message for this week's Mentality Monday is straight-forward and yet very hard to actually enact much of the time. I think so much of the time we forget that we are in control of our lives. We get caught up in the business of living - paying bills, raising kids, deciding whether to even have kids, getting through school, etc etc. We forget that we can control what our life story becomes.

You choose what is a part of your life and what isn't. There are scary things and crises in all of our lives, but don't let them define you and take over everything. Go on an adventure, however tiny or grand it needs to be, and reclaim your life. Clear out the negativity from your existence and make a list of why you can survive your problems. Life is long, poppet. Don't waste it.
