pt of the day
No one else “makes us angry.”
We make ourselves angry when
we surrender control of our attitude.
What someone else may have done is irrelevant.
We choose, not they.
They merely put our attitude to a test.
We cannot choose how many years we will live,
but we can choose how much life those years will have.
We cannot control the beauty of our face,
but we can control the expression on it.
We cannot control life’s difficult moments
but we can choose to make life less difficult.
We cannot control the negative atmosphere of the world,
but we can control the atmosphere of our minds.
Too often we try to choose and control things we cannot.
Too seldom we choose to control what we can …
Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain
but it takes character and self control
to be understanding and forgiving.
