How To Embrace What’s In Your Control!

What you focus on expands. 👀

What you think about, you become. ❤️

Where has your focus been lately? 🤔

On problems? 😣

On things outside your control? 😫

I know these both happened to me the past week. 🙋‍♂️

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

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

Instead it’s providing it via hailstorm lately. 🌩️

So what do you do now? 🤷‍♂️

🙌 Allow yourself to process this fact. 🙌

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. 😓

But I do have some good news…👂

There ARE things which are in your control! 😊

We cannot control the circumstances where we are born. 👎

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

We cannot control the actions of others. 👎

But we can control our reaction to their actions. ❤️

We cannot control what Fate ultimately brings us. 👎

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? 🤔

– Right now, what is outside my control? 🤔

– Right now, what can I do with what’s in my control? 🤔

Keep the answers you find in mind for the choices you make today. 🙌

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

“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.” 🙌

There’s a lot outside our control. 💯

But where hope is found is through this self-awareness: 🙌

📌 With the decisions we make in the present moment.

📌 With how we choose to treat each other.

📌 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. ☀️
