In every scenario, you choose the response.
That’s the topic an old friend and I chewed while slurping noodles at a ramen restaurant.
It’s a topic that keeps popping up these days.
People will annoy you. You can whine about it or focus your energy on something that “sparks joy.”
People you love will die. You can dwell on it or you can keep them close, treasure the good times and live your life.
Neither decision is easy. But that’s life.
Black Sheep said it well in 1991:
The choice is yours.
“You can get with this or you can get with that.”
