It's September again
... and we're starting the school year a little different. There's really not much in our control right now. But what are we actually in control of anyway?
We are not in full control of our surroundings. We are not in full control of certain circumstance in regards to finances, time or health. We are not in full control of our family and friends. A lot of things we deal with on a day to day basis is generally not in our control.
However, it is not to the point where we have NO control. We have control over ourselves. Our thoughts, our attitude, and our actions. While things may be happening around us - our free will allows us to choose how we want to react to it. And while there may be better ways to react to the things we encounter, ultimately the way we choose to react has determined who we are to this point.
So with everything that has been out of control this year, take a moment to think about how you want to choose to react under certain pressures. Will you remain the same? Will you decide to change? Maybe a little bit of both. Either way - every day and every choice is a new chance to create the version of yourself you want to be.
