Acceptance and Adaptation
It is important to us that our students understand that adversity is a condition of life and the only way to overcome it is through acceptance and adaptation. We cannot control what happens to us but we must take responsibility for our actions and reactions, this is the only way to maintain control over our lives.
Caught in a river, we can fight to get back to where we've been and exhaust ourselves in the process, or we can look ahead and go with the stream, which will allow us to work our way to the rivers edge with much more ease. We cannot go back, we must move forward.
We are not slaves to our experiences. The beauty of the mind is its ability to create our world and our reality. What is in the mirror is not all that there is, we are our thoughts, we are our feelings. What is in the mirror will pass but this moment is forever.
This is blue belt.
