Control over my response

Thursday, September 23, 2010

Lately i have felt like a lot of things ae out of my control: work, policy, governement, taxes, mandatory fees, stuff breaking, certification issues...

but i all of a sudden found myself thinking that i do control me and how i respond to problems. I do have some emotional eating issues, but i can learn about them and teach myself to respond in better ways.

Trying to controling other people does not work and leaves me high and dry.

It will take time, practicing willpower, accepting myself and persistance in reaching my goals.

    emoticonThe Bible says there is no need for worry as worry is a waste of time, God never leaves you high and dry.

I always turn it over to prayer but if you are not a Christian I would recommend breathing, Tony Robbins uses a 4 breath method and chants as he exhales...

I love my life

Just stick with your goals and spend time on what you CAN control, YOU are a winner, unique and BEAUTIFUL!

    Yes.

I'll paraphrase something His Holiness the Dalai Lama said, which I fall back on many times every day.

"If you are doing everything within your control to change a situation, there is no need to worry. If you cannot do anything to change a situation, there is still no need to worry."

In other words: Work on what's within your control, and let the rest go. We cannot control others, only ourselves. We can be mindful of how we interact with them, so as not to provoke them--but we cannot control their reactions, only our actions and reactions to them.

You CAN do this.

    Eating right and doing at least a little movement always helps me have more energy and lifts my mood.
