Focus on Things You Can Control

I’ve spent a lifetime wasting precious time and energy trying to control many things in my life. The funny thing is most of what I was trying to control, I never had control of.


The outcome? Frustration, stress, hurt, disappointment, annoying people, and wasting time arguing. The biggest factor is I lost precious time that I can never get back.


Very few things in life are under our control. I have finally accepted this and comfortable with it. In fact, now I enjoy it.


I’ve learned I only have control of me, my choices, behaviors, and my responses.


It means I only have a few things to focus on. I put energy and concern into those few things.
