Disappointment

There is no way to avoid disappointment. 
It is pretty much inevitable. Everyone encounters it at some point in their life. Sometimes we are disappointed by others, sometimes we are disappointed by ourselves and sometimes we are the ones doing the disappointing. You cannot control what other people say, do, or think. But you can control the way you react to them. I think that is the most important thing. The way we react to things shows our true character. Especially when you are caught off guard or surprised, because we were not aware there was an issue. That is when our true colors show. Sometimes it doesn't matter how well you thought you were doing or how much effort you were putting into something, people will be disappointed. They will criticize you and often say things that are not true and that are hurtful. And you just have to walk away. Be the bigger man {or woman}, no matter what they think. The only thing that matters is what you know to be true. What you know to be right. After all, disappointment is God's way of saying, "I have something better in store."

"The principles of living greatly include the capacity to face trouble with courage, disappointment with cheerfulness, and trial with humility. " -Thomas S. Monson
love him.

Just so there are no assumptions, this is not a rant about my husband. I try to be classier than that ;)
