I have written of this before. Recent events say I need a reminder.
Do you know someone who is different and want to know why?
Maybe it’s in their looks? Or the way they act?
No, nothing like that. It’s something good actually. And I want it. Whatever IT is.
Well, he/she must have some kinda secret. I mean, how else could a person never come undone. I’m serious here. He/she is always so cool, in a calm sorta way.
That’s because he/she has power.
See, I knew it.
It’s okay, you have it too. Here’s how it works:
• You can’t control what someone else says or does
• You can control how you react
• If you come undone, you give them control
• You are weak, they are strong
• You have given them your power
Let’s change this:
• Someone does something cruel
• You ignore the hateful act
• You have kept control
• You stayed calm, left them helpless
• You did not give them your power
This takes practice. In time it will change. Then…
You are the one who has IT.
May Your Glass Always Be Half Full
