Today’s Thought: Control the Controllables
We’ve heard this before, and it sounds cliché, but it’s true. There are so many things that impact our lives every single day – the majority of which we have no control over. The only thing we can truly control is us. We can’t always control our circumstance, but we can control our attitude, our outlook, and our actions. There are going to be unpleasant things that happen to us. We’re going to get in a fight with our family or spouse, our kids are going to do something to drive us crazy. There are going to be bad drivers that piss us off. We are going to receive bad news. We are going to mess something up and feel bad about it. All these things are going to happen to us.
We are humans living with other humans. We are not perfect, and we are going to mess up, so why give power away to these things? Why give up our peace of mind for something we never had control over in the first place? We can’t give up our peace to these people and situations because they didn’t earn it. Our well-being and peace of mind belongs to us. Things are going
to happen around us that are going to give us an opportunity to be pissed and hurt. But they are also an opportunity for us to grow and overcome.
It’s okay to be upset when something happens, but then what? What are we going to do about it? Are we going to let it steal our joy for the whole day, or are we going to use it to propel us forward?
Today, I challenge you to control the controllables. Control your reaction, your attitude, your outlook, and your energy 😊
