I often ask others: “What’s the worst that can happen?”
I recently had a scenario where the worst that could happen, did indeed happen.
The outcome was unexpected.
I felt relieved, as if I didn’t have to pretend to be someone else anymore.
Sure, life is a little more difficult than I would like it to be right now. But, I’m taking responsibility for living the life I want to live, as opposed to listening to the collective “they” telling me how I should be living.
As my friend Bruce Elgort tweeted earlier today: “Your communication is the response you receive.” Life is similar, except that it is your response to the response of others. Or simply put, making lemonade when life gives you lemons.
