Controlling Yourself and Only Yourself.

The hardest thing I’ve had to learn is that you can only control yourself. And that you CAN control yourself. No matter what others do you can’t change them. Ever. It’s just not possible.

“Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don’t.” -Steve Maraboli

“You have no control over what the other guy does. You only have control over what you do.” -A.J. Kitt

Two amazing quotes of what I’m trying to explain. And basically what I’m trying to learn how to do.
I’ve learned that a good attitude plays a pivotal role in learning to control yourself. You can control your mood, as impossible as that sounds! It’s harder then words make it seem though. If you just keep telling yourself, it’s no big deal, I’m okay, I’ve got this. Then your day will be so much better.

That leads me into: letting things happen without stressing your hair off! When something doesn’t go your way then just take a deep breath and tell yourself it doesn’t matter. That things will get better so there’s no reason to stress. Because honestly it takes a lot for your life to be ruined and a boy dumping you or a failed test isn’t one of them.

Just chill out today, okay? Take a breather and tell yourself that you are in control of yourself and it doesn’t matter what other people do. You are you. Have a positive attitude and be happy!

Xoxo Larry!
