You fail to realize how much control you really do have over your life.
You wake up in the morning and notice new pimples have appeared over night.
Then, you go to the bathroom and check your weight on the scale. Two pounds heavier.
Next, you go to the kitchen and see a sink full of dirty dishes.
Lastly, you come back to your room and realize just how dirty it is.
We’ve all had these types of days and honestly, it’s the worse.
Those days when everything in life seems to be working against you. Life sucks huh.
Of course it does. When a family member or your dog dies or when you lose your job.
But when your dishes aren’t clean?
Or when your acne is acting up?
Individually, these are problems we face on daily basis and they aren’t bad at all.
Water to flush the toxins out of your body and 15 minutes in the kitchen. Piece of cake.
But together? Waking up to those four scenarios above, all at once?…jeez.
That’s enough to make anyone think life sucks.
Enough to make anyone depressed and unhappy and angry…you name it.
And to think, all of it could’ve been avoided if…
You chose cashews over a bag of Doritos
You cleaned your dishes after your meal
You spent 5 minutes a day, just organizing your room
Crazy, isn’t it?
Crazy how avoidable it all is, how much control we really do have over our lives…
You know yourself better than everyone else.
And you have a new week ahead of you.
Whenever you do something today, ask yourself if there’s a smarter way.
If someone consistently frustrates you, figure out what you can change.
Ask yourself if there’s a less riskier way. A way that won’t potentially frustrate you.
Take those extra seconds to make the smarter decision and be more in control.
Eventually, you’ll apply the same principle with the bigger decisions in life 🙂
