Years (and years and years) ago I told my therapist I wanted to be Queen of the World. She suggested I consider being “the Queen of yourself”.
That stuck with me.
I’ll never be Queen of the World, but I sure as hell can be Queen of myself. Queen of my own world.
It’s how you choose to function in the world that helps you be the Queen of your own world. Remember that because it is so important. We can’t control what happens around us, we can only control how we respond to it.
I have moments of foaming at the mouth and losing my s**t when things don’t go my way. But by actively living my intention, I continue to learn how to respond, and practice responding to those moments with grace, love, and gratitude.
I am the Queen of myself.
I rule my own world.
Works for me…ruling the whole world sounds a might exhausting.
The Fourth Noble Truth; restrain oneself, cultivate self discipline, practice mindfulness and meditation. We cannot change what happens to us, but we can change how we react, and we can change what we do.
This is a wonderful and meaningful post.
