Control <wbr>What <wbr>I <wbr>Can <wbr>Control 

It's really been a long time since I left some tracking note here last time. Fortunately, I’m still survived and alive, even occasionally with some risk of losing courage and direction. Fortunately, my personal world is still under my own control, even with quite incredible difference from the past 5 months (in both career and marriage).

 

After a bit mixed & lost time in something vital, I have eventually kept cool and chosen to stop some resultless or uncontrollable“chase-after”. Even, some questions are frequently echoed in both my brains and my heart; some actions are often flexibly taken in compliance with internal value system; some external happenings are occasionally turned out to reflect different angles; and some people are often significantly rehearsaled to play their own roles in my eyes.

 

More impotantly, I truthfully believe that I cannot control many of the things and events in my lives, including the sun and the tilt of the earth. What I DO control is whether or not I put curtains on the windows, arrange my furniture to take advantage of the light, and use the seasons to add variety and perspective to my home. I can use these predictable changes to enrich my circumstance and make me look at the world differently. I fully understand this and wish to spend the time and energy where I can make a difference.


It's said that our fear is not that we are powerless, but that in fact we are powerful beyond measure. We can influence more than we think. Given enough time, courage and determination, we can modify, impact, transform and re-invent almost everything in our lives. We are not in complete control; that is no excuse to deny the power we have!


The new year will last twelve months. I will have 52 weeks in which to choose my priorities. I will have 366 days to decide where to focus my time, my attention and my efforts. I will have thousands of opportunities to choose, to try, and to learn. Twelve months is a huge amount of time! In twelve months I can achieve miracles.


In the coming twelve months the sun will move, the earth will tilt, the seasons will change. I cannot control these things. But I can control what time I get up in the morning. I can choose my attitude, my friends, my reading material, my diet, my focus and my goals. I can, to a remarkable degree, create the life I want.

 

I firmly believe I have inside of myself a piece of good news. The good news is that I don't know how great I can be, how much I can love, what I can accomplish and what my potential is.

 

In short, I don't let what I can not control distract myself from what I can control and will always control what I can control and try to be the very best of myself.
