  1. I think the first part of this quote is super important because some people just shrug and assume everything is out of their control. They use that as an excuse to fly off the handle or whatever else. But controlling what you can means being in control of yourself and your reactions to things, even if those things you are reacting to are well out side of your control.
    Great quote.

    1. That’s a point of view different than mine and completely makes sense! It’s funny how a quote can have different meanings to different people! 😀 I went with people being over controling while you went with people that assume everything is out of control! Thank you for your insight! It really makes sense and I couldn’t agree more with you! 😀
      Thank you~~! ^^

      1. Probably different points of view because of what we encounter day to day. A lot of people around me give up at the drop of a hat and blame external factors for everything. Even the things they could do something about.

      2. They are a little defeatist. And when pointing out all the things they could try they stubbornly dig their heels in. And then they want to tell me I’m just lucky because such and such didn’t happen to me when I’m working hard to try to avoid those things and they just sit in the path of it and wait for it to hit so they can say “I told you so”. Yeah, frustrating.

      3. The thing is… I did have a lot of problems thrown at myself by life which were completely out of my control and I was still a teen back then… I never dropped my arms down and worked my ass off to be where I am today… So people that come with excuses about this and that and as you say you advice them they don’t care and then come to complain is just… Annoying and for me tells a lot about the character of someone! Sorry I’m a little aggressive about this themes it is just because it makes me so mad when people are like that… They could have it all if they wanted… But no…

      4. I’m with you. Life throws a lot at me somedays, and high school was particularly painful (mostly health concerns that I could not do anything about). But, using that as an excuse to not go anywhere or do anything for the rest of my life did not sit well with me.

  2. Such a great quote! I have totally missed this (had a really mentally bad week and now I have gone and become properly sick as well with fever and headache and dizzy ness and other bothersome stuff) so I better go back and read the other two. Thank you for nominating me. I will get to this soon, but it might be after my oscars week. 😎
