I acknowledge that the only person I have complete control over is me! I cannot control the thoughts, opinions, or actions of others. However, I can control my reactions to whatever life throws my way.
I let go of my desire to control situations and I refuse to allow frustration to cloud my mind. Instead, I choose to focus on what I can do in any given situation.
Even though I cannot control everything, I am not powerless. I still have tools that help me direct my life toward achieving my goals, regardless of life’s distractions.
My time management skills keep me focused and organized. I allow time in my schedule for dealing with distractions without losing my focus on my priorities.
Affirmations are another tool that helps guide my life to where I want to go. Regardless of what life throws at me, I can replace any negative thoughts that creep in with positive ones.
Even in hectic times, I can use breathing exercises, relaxation techniques, and meditation to restore peace and harmony to my soul.
I also use my optimistic outlook on life to find the silver lining in everything.
With these tools at my disposal, I know I can go with the flow, whatever that flow might bring! I do not need to have control over anyone but myself to enjoy life with all its blessings and challenges!
Today, I choose to focus on controlling only myself and discover how joyful life can be without any desire to control others.
1. Do I feel I need to control others for my day to go smoothly?
2. How can I control my life by controlling myself?
3. What stops me from just going with the flow?
