Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

I relax to get my mind off the things I cannot control.

An hour of relaxation a day helps to keep my doctor at bay.

An hour of relaxation a day helps to keep my doctor at bay.

When I am faced with a situation that is out of my control, I remain calm. I simply place the situation on a shelf and walk away. Patiently, I wait for answers. While I wait, I am relaxed and confident. I let go of the need to control every situation.

My thoughts are focused on the things I can control. I have dominion over myself because my thoughts and actions are under my command. By exercising self-control, I am a source of encouragement in difficult situations. 

Things I cannot control are unable to affect me. They roll off my back like water off a swan. I do not dwell on things beyond my control because I accept my limits. 

Understanding that things don’t always go my way, I humble myself to the sovereignty of life. What I can do is put on the garments of a positive attitude even when I don’t get my way. 

I accept that I cannot control others. Without using manipulation, I try to help and influence others, but I do not expect them to bend to my will. 

If I feel myself getting frustrated over something beyond my control, I remove myself from the situation and relax. Taking a warm bath lets me soak my cares away. Using candles and soft music, I cleanse myself of the desire to control what I cannot. 

Even when I think there is a better way, I am a team player. I do not value my own point of view above everyone else’s opinion.

When I relax I am free from insecurity. My mind is focused on positive things. I am mature enough to accept the bad with the good and what I cannot control with what I can. I have peace and serenity. 

Self-Reflection Questions:
