Your life at any time can become difficult. Your life at any time can become easy. It all depends upon how you adjust to life.
It's never the situation, it's your reaction to the situation. The way you react to circumstances determines your feelings. Your quality of life is determined not by what life brings to you, but by the attitude you have towards life.
What happens to you is less significant than what happens within you. You cannot always control your circumstances, but you can control your own thoughts. It's not your position but your disposition that matters.
