There are some things in our lives that are completely out of our control. It doesn’t matter how much we plan or prepare, there is nothing we can do about it. Sometimes, life happens and in the end control is an illusion.
Chuck Swindoll once said “I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it.” At the core, he is right. We can either complain or worry about things that we can never do anything about, or we can just put on our big boy/girl pants on and deal with it. It is our attitudes and decisions in those moments define who we are, not what happens or what we are able control.
