Have you ever been asked “How’s life been treating you?” I was asked this loaded question just the other day. I say loaded because the question contains a controversial or unjustified assumption, the assumption being that we are somehow unwitting victims of whatever life is throwing our way.
The more useful question might be: “How are you treating life today?” You have the power to create, the ability to condition the circumstances we face in life. Circumstances are neutral; the fact of free will allows you to decide as to whether or not you’ll make constructive use out of everything – yes everything! – that comes your way.
