“You can’t control what others think. The only thing you can control is yourself. Some people will look down on you for your choices in life, no matter what they are. You can’t do anything about that. The only thing you can do is decide how to live your own life. And to hell with everybody else…” – via Instagram
I needed to read these words yesterday. A project I’m working on is creeping up on crunch time and a few folks have attempted to change my approach to how I face challenges, bringing a darker energy to bear which is not my natural bent.
For a few minutes, I doubted myself. And then, in the flip of a switch in my head, I changed that thought, changed my mind, and it was gone.
I was/am back to my chosen perspective of putting one foot in front of the other, in a positive frame of mind, and knowing all goals will be accomplished.
Not to be too pithy, but never forget – what others think of you doesn’t matter. How you choose to handle yourself is always up to you.
And wine. Wine is important, too 🙂
