I do not have any control over other people, places, or things. I only posses the control of my emotions and/or reaction to said challenges. I’ve learned over the years to think before I react. It has made a huge difference regarding any unwarranted future consequences.
RE: Future – There is no such thing; nor is there a past. There is only the present. Like right now… Which was just here, but is already gone… D’oh!
