I couldn't just let go of this thought I had after reading a chapter tonight. It's 9:35 pm and I'm all ready to go to bed. I got to get my pen and paper, but to no avail, I left my paper clean and rushed to the computer trying to remember all the things this little nomad's brain wants to say.
I was talking to a friend this morning. Although the topic was another person, I couldn't stand not to recall it when I was heading home. I was a little grumpy with my boss, but I choose not to let it in my system for I could have ruined my day as well. I am sure it is really depressing for her that the brochure's lay out was not yet finalized. If I would decide to be grumpy and choose not to smile every time she checks in at me, I could have started the misunderstandings between us too. My friend and I, within a short conversation, led me to thinking that if you were thinking you were born to lose, then you are gonna be a loser for your entire life.
If you think you are beaten, you are beaten so bad. If you think you dare not, you don't. If you'd like to win but you think you can't, it's almost certain that you won't. Life's battles don't always go to the stronger or faster man, but to sooner or later, the man who wins is the man who thinks he can.
I am responsible to what I will become for my destiny in life will never be determined by my complaining spirits. I have no control of life's surprises but I do have control of how to deal with the surprise.
The pessimist complains about the wind.
The optimist expects it to change.
I will adjust the sail.
I have to keep working on my thoughts in life. I am responsible to have a great attitude towards something and to maintain that attitude in anything that comes my way. I don't run on automatic. You can't see no settings in me. Neither there is a setting for you life. Most often, we try to change and control things that we cannot control. It is also too seldom that we choose to control ourselves.
