The Control Factor

Posted by Sean RN on April 25, 2008

Learning to control only what we can directly control. So this begs the question.. do we really try to control what we can’t control?

Absolutely.

That’s how we develop our stress. That’s where your worries come from. That’s why we are or can become very unhappy.

We worry about the bills. We worry about the health of our loved ones. We worry if he or she likes me. We worry if our job is secure. The list is endless.

The question is, why? Why do we try to control that which we have no control over? Why not simply control what we can control….meaning control us.

Yep. Simply controlling YOU can alleviate if not eliminate stress, aggravation and possible unhappiness.

So… controlling you? What the heck does that mean?

Learn to control your reaction to something… not the event itself. So it’s a rainy day. Instead of being aggravated and upset that it’s not a sunny day, learn to adapt to the situation. Be happy that it’s not raining on you! Be happy that there isn’t a hole in the roof of your car or house!

Keep it simple. Control yourself.. not others. Control your actions, not the actions or intentions of others. Control how YOU can improve a situation instead of pointing the finger at someone else.

If you can’t control it… let it go.

Take care of yourself and yours.

Consider the source

Posted by Sean RN on April 20, 2008

We all to often jump head first into things. Patience is of course a virtue, but when something is heard, or spoken that flickers your emotions it’s hard sometimes to stop and let it marinate.

So where did you learn of this news? Who told you? Where did you hear it from?

The Internet has turned John Q. Public into a very informed society. But what kind of information are we consuming? We all too often believe what is in print simply because it just MUST be true?! Right?… uuuhh Right?

Yes, some things are true whether we choose to believe them or not. But make sure you consider the source.

As always take care of yourselves and yours.

Everything put together falls apart sooner or later

Posted by Sean RN on April 20, 2008

Age is inevitable. Aging is guaranteed. From that bookcase you bought to that toy you had as child. Sooner or later it will fall apart.

The question is do you want it to happen sooner or later?

If it’s put together properly, it should last a good amount of time. If you take care of it, it should last. If you pay attention to how you handle it, it should last.

Now if you want to haphazardly put it together.. then it’s sure to fall apart soon. If you neglect it or handle it improperly… yep. Much sooner than later it won’t be around.

Maybe we should treat our selves like something we put together?

What do you think?

As always take care of yourselves and yours.
