The problem solver!

Another good insight from the Dalai Lama to share today.

As long as we live in this world, we are bound to encounter problems. If, at such times, we lose hope and become discouraged, we diminish our ability to face difficulties. If, on the other hand, we remember that it is not just ourselves but also everyone who has to undergo suffering, this more realistic perspective will increase our determination and capacity to overcome troubles. – Insight from the Dalai Lama

This is another wonderful quote, and one that suits my life right now. It is so easy to get trapped in having a pity party for yourself when things don’t go the way you expected them to go. The mind can easily twist and warp our perceptions into making situations seem far worse than they truly are. Remember you are not alone on your quest, and it is not always about you. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, we simply need to keep moving forward.

    Thanks for this great quote and post, it is very relevant to me too. I agree that the mind can blow things out of proportion to events but it helps to remember we’re all on this journey and the emotions are the same on a fundamental level.
