You’re in charge.

There are many influences on our lives, seen and unseen. Overall socio-political trends affect our lifestyles. World events like the COVID 19 pandemic impact us, often in larger ways, and are certainly not things we consciously chose. Other folks make decisions that affect us.

In many of these instances, we can’t prevent things or alter widespread occurrences. We can, however, choose how we react to outside influences. We alone are in charge of our decisions.

After all, we are the one influence that is always present in our lives. In this way, we are the only ones responsible for our lives. We get to choose how we feel, think, and act. The quality of how we experience life is within our control.

Today’s message reminds me that if I don’t like something going on in my life, I have options. I can change how I think, feel, and react. I’m in charge of my own happiness.

Please reflect and share. Do you feel like you’re in charge of your life?
