Challenge yourself

As I sit and type this week’s blog, I am amazed at how quickly this year has seemed to have gone by.  There is just a little over 2 months until we start 2020.  Many people wait until the beginning of each year to set goals for themselves for the upcoming year.  Their “New Years Resolution” if you will.  I personally like to set goals for myself throughout the year, in fact frequently I set daily goals for myself, and often I adjust those goals as the day progresses.  Like many of you, I start out each day with the goal of “making at least one person happy.”  To make a positive change in the life of another.  As easy as that sounds, we may find it’s not as easy to accomplish on any given day, depending on the reaction, attitude and actions of others. We have been told “We cannot control the actions of others, but rather how we react to their actions,” however recently I saw a post on Facebook that put a somewhat different spin on that statement. “When you can’t control what’s happening, challenge yourself to control the way you respond to what’s happening.  That’s where the power is.”  I encourage you to set this as your goal for the upcoming week, one that you can achieve with ease, that gives back the control to you!
