You Are in Control

I’ve written many quotes since I started writing, but one I refer to often is “You are always in control. Never forget“. This is because sometimes I forget that I’m in control of a situation I find myself in, and I need that reminder that I’m that badass bitch who can figure things out.

Let’s say, for instance, I’m whining about something I have to do the next day. It’s 1:00 am, and I’m still awake because I’m worried about how things would go, forgetting that I have options and I only have to choose that it will go well and go to sleep. I’ve found myself in situations I didn’t need to be in, but once I remember that I have the power to remove myself, everything becomes okay.

Last weekend, I heard a variation of my quote in a movie, “we can only control what is in our control”, and it was just what I needed to make a decision I had been stalling on. It’s funny how life presents solutions to you that were already right in front of you.

You’re the reason you’re sad.
You’re the reason you’re happy.
If you don’t like something, change it.
If you don’t want something, don’t take it.
You’re in control of your feelings.
You’re in control of your thoughts.
You’re in control of your life.

If something is in your control, you can control it. If it’s not in your control, then leave it. Stop whining, worrying and fretting.
