My daughter is a quote collector like her mama.
Here’s the one she has taped to her dashboard:
That is challenging for me.
When the one thing happens you think will never happen, well, that opens a whole chest full of fears you thought you’d locked inside.
But when I wake up I get to choose: will I give in or fight back?
I’m learning that while I can’t stop the thoughts that fly around in my brain I can choose which ones I invite to make a nest there.
When fear threatens to undo me, I resist.
I refuse to react to what MAY happen. I choose to hold onto what IS happening, right now.
Truth is, either way, I have no control over the future.
I will not lose today because of what tomorrow might bring.
