So many things are out of my control lately. I lost my teaching job after 15 years of loyal service. No one is calling me for an interview. My mother’s health is declining. My son is growing up. I am growing older.
While I can’t control these things, I can focus on the things I can control.
I can get up every morning and go to my teaching job for the last few weeks I have it. I can continue to make a difference until the last day.
I can write every day. I can share my unique perspective with the world and learn from the perspectives of others.
I can make choices to improve my health and my outlook on life. I can eat healthy foods and exercise.
Maybe, I can’t control the challenges that life chooses to give me, but I can control how I choose to meet them.
