Sometimes there are going to be things that you can't directly control in the moment.
Who your kid chooses to date. Or just, your kid, period.
What people think of your idea.
Where the SVP plans to relocate your division.
When natural disasters strike.
Why someone chose to end a relationship.
Which grad school ends up admitting you.
Whether the results of the test your doctor ordered come back negative.
Even in moments when so much feels outside of your control, you still have the power to choose how you view the situation and what you will do in response.
You always have that choice. Use it to your benefit.
