Life can be simple or complicated, it really IS up to you
If you choose to take the complicated approach, then you choose to sweat all the issues that get thrown your way, be they big or small issues. And I can guarantee that you WILL get issues thrown your way.
You can then fret, worry and generally immerse yourself in the issue and let it eat away at you.
What’s the point?
Yes, issues will come and go, it’s what life will do to us all. But why consume more energy than is necessary? It is an issue that needs to be dealt with and then move on. Don’t let whatever it is, permeate inside of you as you will reduce your lifespan if you do too much of this!
Enjoy every day because you “choose” to
Understand that life WILL throw things your way, it IS what life does. Some issues will be big and some will be huge. They all need to be dealt with, but they cannot “consume” you!
Just choose to have the attitude that whatever issue it is, is merely a “life lesson” that you have to navigate and deal with. The difference is that it is a lesson external to you.
Yes, you have to deal with it, but you keep it external. You don’t choose to let it affect you and enter inside of you. Doing this, as mentioned above, will reduce your life expectancy and you will likely get ill. Internalising issues that come your way is not a good tactic.
The difference between the two approaches as to whether you have a “simple” approach or ” complicated” approach, is your attitude
How you see the challenges according to your attitude will determine how you resolve them and ultimately have they will affect you physically and mentally
So facing issues with the right attitude determines whether life is indeed simple or complicated
