I'm really digging this concept right now. Anything that saves my tiny shred of sanity is good, not? I feel pretty crazy most of the time but I'd like to be able to function in this world.
I'm breaking down situations into two categories, even though I realized life doesn't always fall so neatly, but I think this works.
1) Can I control this?
2) Am I going to let this control me?
And before you go thinking I'm some classic control freak, let me say that I often feel like everything in my world is not only of my control of but outtacontrol in general and also holy jumpin' man, aren't we all to some extreme or another?
Let's try this out.
Can I control this?
Am I going to let it control me?
Not really. Maybe my riders won't ride today but we can learn other stuff inside the barn.
I'M IN A CRAP MOOD
Well yes technically. I can't always control what put me in a bad mood but I can decide how I'm going to react to it.
That's how I know whether or not it will control me.
I'm still working on this.
Any thoughts? How do you tell the difference between what you can control and what you don't want to let control you?
