Ambition over Adversity

by Tupac Shakur

 

Take one’s adversity
Learn from their misfortune
Learn from their pain
Believe in something
Believe in yourself
Turn adversity into ambition
Now blossom into wealth
Morning all! This morning… I won’t lie… I struggled, I really struggled with staying positive. I needed to take time to reflect on two things.

What had made me feel so negative? What would I do about it?

I wrote. Lol. I literally wrote a letter to the situation and made an action list of what I need to do (me and my lists)! Without spilling too much tea, I accept that I cannot control other people’s actions, words or feelings but I can control what I do. How I respond to feelings of sadness and what I do next. My issue is remembering this and sticking to it. As Keats said “…So, when dark thoughts my boding spirit shroud. Sweet Hope, celestial influence round me shed…”

Positivity to you all.
