Events are neutral, it is our reaction to them that determines what they mean.
We have probably all heard that numerous times. And yet it is easy to forget when we are feeling low, are scared or irritated.
I saw that quite clearly these last couple of weeks. Tomorrow, I am moving to Berlin, and will live in Germany again for the first time in nearly 20 years. Depending on my state of mind this fills me either with excitement, or with terror.
Moving to Berlin is neutral, but what I think about it is not.
And the more able I am to stay positive, the better I feel (yes, I know, kind of a no-brainer).
What helped me a great deal to not go down the worry road is that I decided that everything that happens in my life is for me, if I can see it or not.
Or, in the words of my mentor, things happen for you, not to you.

Have a beautiful Sunday!
Lots of love
