I’ve struggled with wanting to control everything around me, thinking that way I could guarantee my happiness. But that has only just brought on more anxiety. It’s impossible to anticipate and control every little thing in the world around you. Especially when dealing with a world changing global pandemic.
Wayne Dyer said “You cannot always control what goes on outside. But you can always control what goes on inside“
We can focus on our emotional and mental health, which also helps arm our immune system with a strength to keep us healthy physically. We can control what we consume in information, media, as well as nutrition. We can control how much peace we want to feel each and every moment. And, sometimes keeping your sense of peace means dropping the need to make someone else wrong.
We cannot always control all of the changes happening on the outside. But we can always control what goes on inside. Knowing this is a big comfort to me. I hope it can be the same for you.
