We all want to control the world around us. Admit it! If I can’t control others’ lives, behaviors, attitudes…I get frustrated. That is, until I realize I have no control over them. We all share this frustration to one degree or another.
There is one thing over which I have 100% control. That is, I have control over my response to what is happening around me. I control my attitude. I like what Maya Angelou said. Something to the effect…”If you can change things around you, change them! If you can’t, change your attitude.”
I love the serenity prayer. “Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can…and the wisdom to know the difference.”
Just remember…as you think you should be able to change people around you…they are expecting you to change for them….
Think about it…
