One thing I have learned in this journey called life is that there are things I can control and when I saw this list, it was a great list of things we can control in life. Beliefs, thoughts, attitudes, and perspective are all things we can control, in spite of what happens in our lives, in spite of any negativity we may experience in relationships, in life. Our beliefs might be challenged, but doesn’t mean the original ones had or have zero merit. We might have to make some adjustment, but doesn’t mean we have to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Our attitude is also something we can choose to control, can cultivate a more positive, healthy, constructive one, or choose to stay with a bitter sour one. We can try and blame others for our beliefs, attitudes etc.., but at the end of the day and once we are adults, it’s down to us, not down to our parents, grandparents or anyone else, not even Hollywood, unless we want to be dumb enough to let Hollywood idiots dictate our beliefs, attitudes, morals, ethics etc…We have more control over our lives than we think we do.
Shalom and Amen
