💡There is so much that feels out of our control these days!
💡We are living through a pandemic; we feel like people are making decisions for us constantly.
💡We are parents with kids who; have their own ideas of a good time, and different capacities than we do.
💡We are partners and friends; with different love languages and needs.
💡Acknowledging what we can and cannot control is a step forward in activating more pleasure and less stress in our lives.
Here are 5 things you can control:
🌻1. Taking mindful moments and breaths
🌻2. What we watch watch/read in the news and social media
🌻3. How we speak to people around us (our kids, partners, family members, etc.)
🌻4. How kind we are to ourselves and how we self soothe
🌻5. Our attitude and enthusiasm
Here are 5 things we can not control:
🌻1. People’s reactions, what other folks say and do
🌻2. Choices of other folks, even when we feel like we know better
🌻3. Other people’s opinions of us
🌻4. The passage of time
🌻5. The amount of empathy someone has for us
💡When in doubt, take the following step to remind yourself of what you can control, what you can influence and what is out of your control.
💡Focus your energy on things that you can control and influence.
I’m with you! 💙
