Written words – Control

Life can be frustrating.
When a decision that was entirely your own, leads to a series of events totally out of your control.
Will Smith said, “There is something liberating about making a choice, in choosing and not simply accepting how things are going to be”, and he’s right. But there’s also an old adage which says “you can’t always control what happens, but you can always control how you respond”.
But what about when the choices you’ve made, render your response irrelevant? When the wheels get set in motion and all you can do is watch, like playing “Plinko” on “The Price is Right”.
Yea, life can be frustrating, waiting for that tiny ball to tell you what lies ahead. Just watching, helpless, because of the choice you made.
