No major post today, because I find myself feeling rather ill. But the knot in my stomach does remind me that not all aspects of life are really under our control. There are things that are going to happen whether we want them to or not, and there’s no point in focusing on how much they inconvenience us. We can, however, work on what we can do about it. We aren’t always responsible for the things that happen to us, but we are on the hook for what we do about it. (I’m struggling to remember who said this. If you know the source, post it in the comments!)
So there’s something to chew on. When have you experienced life happening beyond your control? And what did you do about it?
