Glass Half-Full


There will always be things in our lives that we can't control. For us that are, shall we say, control freak-ish, this can be a difficult pill to swallow.

We can't make someone do something that they just don't want to (with a possible exception of our kids). You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink.

In a scenario where I don't feel I'm in control, I try to focus on the positive. I guess I'm more of a glass half-full kind of person. I try to see where I do have power. I can't make you do something, but I do have control over my response and what I choose to do. So, the school board may not listen to our suggestions/requests/anger--but I can be involved in my child's school, I can be an active participant in her class and in her education in and outside of school. It doesn't mean that I'll roll over and stop trying to change your mind. But I won't let it defeat me.
