You are in control. You have control over what you think, what you wear, where you go, what you do, what you eat, who you talk to, etc. Because you have control over so much of your life, you shouldn’t stress when you find that there is something that you can’t control.
Whenever something proves to be out of your control, take your power back by controlling how you respond to the situation. You can always control what happens next. Spend your time focusing on the things that serve you, rather than the things that put you in a negative space. Thinking about something that can’t be changed does nothing but waste your time. Be productive. Be positive. Be proactive.
Move to the next moment, and figure out how you can make things better. Don’t be afraid to ask for help either. We are all here to serve one another in some way. You don’t have to have all of the answers. You can control how you solve an issue. You can control who you go to for help. You can control who you help.
Life is all about choices. I know that I say this a lot, but it’s only because it’s true. You can choose to be down on yourself, thinking about the things that you can’t control or change. OR you can choose to be positive and focus on the things that you do have control over, and focus on the things that you can change.
Take Action: Decide to change your perception, and make the best of the things you have control over.
