Mindful living

"There is so much about my fate that I cannot control,

but other things do fall under the jurisdiction.
I can decide how I spend my time,
whom I interact with,
whom I share my body and life and money and energy with.

I can select what I can read and eat and study.

 I can choose how I'm going to regard unfortunate circumstances...
whether I will see them as curses or opportunities.

 I can choose my words and the tone of voice in which I speak...

And most of all, I can choose my thoughts...”

Elizabeth Gilbert
