Things fall into one of two categories - things we can control and things we can’t.
It’s quite simple to distinguish between them. Where we run into trouble is thinking we can put things from the second category into the first.
We have to be able to accept that, despite our best efforts, things might not go our way. No matter what we do, things might not turn out how we want.
That isn’t a bad thing.
We have to detach ourselves from the outcome.
The outcome doesn’t define us.
We are more than that.
