Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.
Charles R. Swindoll
So I believe that Charles was trying to say that our reactions have more meaning in our life than what happens to us. In other words, do you react with poise and grace, or do you fly into a rage?
When I read this I see how it applies to our modern attachment to electronics. We are all looking for our next reaction so that we can post to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram… Rather than create something of our own, we lurk, waiting for something to happen so that we can tell others what we think, how we feel, or what we think they should do about it. Slow news days are so boring!
