Goal for the Day: Be Better, Not Bitter

News of the first successful full face transplant this week raises an interesting point. The recipient of the transplant has professed his philosophy of being better, not bitter. It’s a very true concept.

While none of us can always change the events which shape our lives, we can choose the manner in which we handle them. Becoming bitter and angry is the easiest approach to life. We could spend our days complaining and seething. Anyone can do that. However, a truly remarkable individual will find a way to rise above the pain and make a vow to both ourselves and our loved ones to look at each challenge as an opportunity to be better. We may never be able to turn back time and return to where we were, but we can always forge ahead to become something even more wonderful.
