Control

Hey everyone! How are you today? 🙂

Bit of a short one today but thought it worthwhile to share 😊

Today was ehhh. Like, there’s no other way to describe it. Running on 2 hours of sleep. Counselling appointment this morning, which I cried my eyes out during half of it. General feelings of being unmotivated, worthless, anxious. Everything is loud for me today. I spent the majority of it in bed.

I could sit here listing the bad stuff (which I basically just did), which is important. You gotta write that list. You gotta acknowledge what’s bugging you.

But you know what else is important? Writing more than 1 list, so you don’t dwell on the hard stuff. I wrote 3 day.

1 – for all the things that are keeping me down today.

2 – all of the benefits that I get from my suffering.

3 – factors in my life that I can control.

The last 2 were eye openers for me. I was amazed to see how much I’ve grown as a person through these hard times. My compassion & awareness of others and myself has increased significantly over the past year. My courage, perseverance & resilience have hardened me into the accepting strong person that I am.

What I want you all to think about today, however: is what YOU can control.

YOU can control your thoughts. I know it may feel like you can’t, but you can. You get to choose what thoughts you invest in. You can choose what views you have on yourself and other people, but you can’t choose what others think of you. You can choose how you perceive a situation and react to it. You are in control of your actions. You can control who you interact with and the type of people you surround yourself with. You can control how you use and manage your time. And most of all, You can control your outlook on life.

There’s something to ponder for a while, lovely people ☺️

I hope you all have a great day/night. Any questions, again feel free to email me or comment below, or visit my Instagram page – @breannas.blog!

Much love ❤️

  1. I am sorry that you are having an “ehhh” day today. I hope it gets better for you! At least you were able to get your feelings out during your counseling session. I find that it usually helps. Asking what we have control over is an amazing topic because often times we let things that are out of our control really affect us on some deep levels. You are right, they only things we honestly have control over is ourselves, our thoughts, our actions, and our words.

    As much as we would like to control everything that surrounds us, we simply can’t. The sooner we realize that the sooner we can stop letting the things that are out of our control, control us. If that makes sense. If it doesn’t that could be because I am on day three of no sleep lol.

    Feel better 😀 Xoxo

    1. No that definitely makes sense, and is what I was trying to get across in my blog! Thank you! 🌸

      I really feel for you. Having no sleep sucks 😦 sometimes only a couple hours is even worse because you wake up feeling utterly exhausted.

      I’m sorry I haven’t gotten to your email yet! Even though I had all the time in the world today. Just not feeling the greatest, though I’m a bit better now after seeing my friends tonight 🙂

      Thank you for your well wishes!! I hope you are doing okay! ❤️

      1. I am glad that you are doing better, even if it is just a little bit. I am doing pretty good for not sleeping. I am bipolar and currently trapped in a manic episode. If it is okay with you I am going to use your main idea to make a blog post. I want to title it, “what do we honestly have control over” and then because I got the idea from you I will put a link with your blog so if people want they can check out where I got the main idea from. What do you think?
