One of the main things I hear from people after 2 months of confinement with the pandemic, is how their lives are so out of control. They can’t do what they have been doing for a lifetime.
But there are at least 26 things that are completely under your control. These are the ones that help you to live a happy, joyful and fulfilled life, no matter the pandemic and the confinement.
How honest you are
Who your friends are
What books you read
How often you exercise
The type of food you eat
How many risks you take
How you interpret the situation
How kind you are to others
How kind you are to yourself
How often you say “I love you.”
How often you say “thank you.”
How you express your feelings
Whether or not you ask for help
How often you practice gratitude
How many times you smile
The amount of effort you put forth
How you spend/invest your money
How much time you spend worrying
How often you think about your past
Whether or not you judge other people
Whether or not you try again after a setback
How much you appreciate the things you have
Remember, YOU ALONE Get to Choose What Matters and What Doesn’t Matter in Your Life.
The Meaning of Everything in Your Life Has Precisely the Meaning You Give It.
