How To Embrace What’s In Your Control!

What you focus on expands. πŸ‘€

What you think about, you become. ❀️

Where has your focus been lately? πŸ€”

On problems? 😣

On things outside your control? 😫

I know these both happened to me the past week. πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ

The realization at how much is out of our control can feel disheartening, right? πŸ’”

Especially when Life didn’t wait to give us this fact one bit at a time. πŸ‘£

Instead it’s providing it via hailstorm lately. 🌩️

So what do you do now? πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

πŸ™Œ Allow yourself to process this fact. πŸ™Œ

It’s a tough truth to think about. It was tough for me to sit with too. You’re not alone. ❀️

There is A LOT which is outside of our control. πŸ˜“

But I do have some good news…πŸ‘‚

There ARE things which are in your control! 😊

We cannot control the circumstances where we are born. πŸ‘Ž

But we can control what how we use our circumstances. ❀️

We cannot control the actions of others. πŸ‘Ž

But we can control our reaction to their actions. ❀️

We cannot control what Fate ultimately brings us. πŸ‘Ž

But we can control how we decide to face our Fate. ❀️

As you go through your day, ask yourself:

– Right now, what is within my control? πŸ€”

– Right now, what is outside my control? πŸ€”

– Right now, what can I do with what’s in my control? πŸ€”

Keep the answers you find in mind for the choices you make today. πŸ™Œ

If you’re theistically inclined, you can also remember the words of the Serenity Prayer πŸ™:

“God, grant me the serenity to Accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, and Wisdom to know the difference.” πŸ™Œ

There’s a lot outside our control. πŸ’―

But where hope is found is through this self-awareness: πŸ™Œ

πŸ“Œ With the decisions we make in the present moment.

πŸ“Œ With how we choose to treat each other.

πŸ“Œ With how we embrace being the change we wish to see.

Let us not forget: you cannot have light without darkness, just as you cannot have darkness without light. ☯️

One cannot exist without the other. ↔️

Consider this post a part of the light that’s coming your way. β˜€οΈ
