Life is simple really.
It is just a matter of moments and decisions that get you from one moment to the next.
Simple. No mystery about it.
Just one moment then another and another. You decide what to do in the next moment. You can get brave and plan future moments, most of us do. Then there are the moments that are planned for us one after another after another. Work, school, responsibilities and obligations are just pre-planned moments.
Who or what is in control for your moments and thus control of your life is entirely up to you.
Will you let the jerk who makes you lose you temper and feel angry control your moment? Will you passively let the someone else control what happens to you in your moments?
What about God? Will you let God control your next moment?
Each life is nothing but a series of moments that come and go. We live not day by day, one day or week or year at a time like we choose to believe.
No, we live one moment at a time.
How we choose to live the next moment is in our control.
What? You don’t believe that? What about obligations when you must do things you do not want to do? Yes, that is in your control too. You choose to participate in what is expected of you or not. You choose what happens.
Don’t give me that BS that you are not in control, life makes you do certain things whether you want to or not.
Did you get up this morning? Yes? You could have stayed in bed. You control what you do, always.
So, stop with the he/she/they made you mad and the you have to do this or that. Don’t let me hear you say your boss, parent spouse friend made you do……..No, you are in control of every moment of everything in your life.
The only two things you are not in control of are other people’s actions and acts of God. Your reaction to those two things are still in your control.
Say it with me, “I control my reactions to the actions of others and I am in charge of moments in my life one moment at a time.”
Yes you will have to contend with the consequences of your actions; however you choose the action.
Do what you choose. Live your life your way.
Rolling a D20 is optional.
