It’s so easy to get into a “we’re all fucked” mentality these days. After all, there are plenty of reasons to be worried..but I don’t want this post to turn into a litany of those reasons. I’ll admit that I started writing this because I was so frustrated with my inability to control the world and everything in it…but as I take a moment to pause and consider, I think I may want to truncate this post and simply say this:
I want to focus on what’s right in front of me. I can’t control my reality, let alone other people’s realities. All I have control over is my
reaction attitude toward those things. If I allow myself to descend into self-pity and demoralization then I won’t be able to be of use to anyone, least of all myself.
I don’t know what the future holds, nor is it any of my business. My business is dealing in the present.
