“Learning to adapt to the current circumstances is a key to being happy. Right now, it’s like this.”

Following the devastation caused by hurricane Ian in the southeast, the area where I live in Pennsylvania experienced a few days of constant rain. I was surprised that some people complained about our soggy situation.

They apparently internalized the rain and cloudiness, instead of adapting to things as they were. That’s why we have umbrellas and rain coats.

Learning to accept things as they are and working to change things where we can is a road to self-determination.


What do you need to accept that you cannot change?

How can you take things as they are and make the most of even the stormy days ahead?
