A simple lesson it has taken me 43 years to learn.

To be honest, the two sentences I am about to share are very slippery.

They are the types of sentences that you learn, carry around for a few weeks or even a few months, but then forget. They fall right out of your head and a year later you bump back into them and learn them all over again. But I am convinced they are true and I am more than a little embarrassed it’s taken me 43 years to learn them.

Ready? I think one of the best things you can do is:

1. Control the things you can.
2. Control your response to the things you can’t.

Learn that today and tomorrow will be a lot easier.

    I love it. It’s a bit terrifying to embrace these two concepts because it accepts the reality of how little we actually control. But doing these two things removes a huge burden we can easily carry around unnecessarily.
