You could be Bill Gates, or you could be the President of America, accept it, there are things that you cannot change, things that you have no say in, many things.
Recently, I had been forced to accept some hard realities. As one of my best buddies say, I am a dangerously optimistic person. I could close my eyes to realities even when everything is falling apart. So this was new to me. Guess what? I survived.
I got frustrated, I got worried, but all over the things that I had no control over, things that I couldn’t make a difference in. And when it started getting over me and started getting into my commitments are responsibilities I found this. It has worked for me and it could work for you too.
This has worked for me quite well. But there were flashes of the frustration coming back, but hey.. then there is nothing much you can do about it.

“Life is a storm, my young friend. You will bask in the sunlight one moment, be shattered on the rocks the next. What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes. You must look into that storm and shout as you did in Rome. Do your worst, for I will do mine! Then the fates will know you as we know you: as Albert Mondego, the man!” ~ The Count of Monte Cristo
