“You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.” ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

We love control and that is okay just as long as it does not do either of these two things:

  1. Affect your mental and physical health.
  2. Deprive you of enjoyable, spontaneous experiences.

Make sure your desire for control isn’t because there is something else inside of you that needs to be controlled instead.
