Accepting and Understanding Control

Many times we let ourselves get upset over the decisions and choices that those we love and care for make that we don’t support.

Many times like broken records we try to tell others why the path they’re on is wrong and why our way would be better.

Many times we see what’s wrong in the lives of others and pay little attention to what we need to fix in our own lives.

Many times we don’t realize or rather refuse to accept that some of us just have to learn some lessons in our own time because if we skip the steps we stand the risk of repeating the same mistakes.

Many times we are angry and upset but don’t admit to ourselves the real cause or root of what we feel and why.

Many times there are periods in our lives when even though we are surrounded by people we may feel alone.

Many times we often hide our true feelings out of fear, pride or uncertainty.

The thing is, there will be many instances when there are things and people we don’t understand, agree with or even like.

We have to sometimes accept that is how they are – at least, at this current moment in their lives.Β  We can’t fix nor is it our job to everyone or everything. It is only through understanding and learning to recognize that we can’t and will never control everything around us will we be able to better handle such situations.Β Β 

Our strength and power comes from understanding that the only control we need to have is over ourselves, our thoughts, our emotions, our words and our actions. When we don’t practice control over our mind, body and spirit we leave ourselves open to whatever and whomever wants to manipulate and control our lives.

Make a conscious decision today to use the power within you wisely! πŸ™‚

May the New Year bring you joy, happiness, love and a way forward to a better, brighter and stronger YOU.

Thank you for stopping by.Β  Have a wonderful weekend. πŸ™‚

  1. I have been expecting a post like this from you, Cherylene. Thank you for sharing and happy holidays!
    It is indeed true, we have to come to terms with the fact that we are in control, WE make the decisions and we live through them. Most times because of fear, we throw the power of control to people and situations that intimidate us….

  2. If their choices negatively affect us then we would have to take action to safeguard ourselves. The answers aren’t always simple or easy. We control what we can. Hope all is well Cheila. Best wishes to you and your family for the New Year. Thanks for stopping by. πŸ™‚
