“Not being able to govern events, I govern myself.”Michel de Montaigne
Were it that we could control the weather, the seasons, the people in our lives, or our gods. We can’t. But Montaigne gives a way forward, that is, not to stress about the things we can’t control, but instead focus on that which we can. Have a great day … it’s yours to shape.

A very good thought, Andrew. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for the reminder. It is so very true. Focusing on what we cannot control never works.

Thanks for the comment. I got caught in the rain today …. forgetting my umbrella was in my control, the heavens opening wasn’t. Sigh!
