Do you feel sometimes that so many things are out of your control? Much like keeping plates spinning on top of little sticks, it is defintely impossible to keep running left and right in order to give them a swing. Not to mention all the outside factors that could and most likely will interfere and make you drop a few plates here and there. The harder you try to control the plates, the sticks, your speed and accuracy and all the things that may happen, the more likely you will exhaust yourself and fail.
But it is always hard to conclude that life cannot be controlled…
Is that it, you may think?! Life cannot be controlled so I may as well throw in the towel and let it happen. Don’t descend into helplessness. Life may not be able to be controlled but you can manage you, your thoughts, your actions. You can’t control outside circumstances, or even other people.
You cannot control the wind, but you can always adjust your sails.
