Things I can control, and things I can’t

I am in control of whether or not my children have clean underwear. I am not able to control how the world treats them or their little friends.

I am able to give myself a shower. I am not able to make the world value me as a woman over thirty and overweight.

I am able to go to church, to teach my children right from wrong, to take my depression one day at a time, to volunteer to help others, to ride my bike. I am not able to pick my president and the values my fellow Americans hold.

I am able to stand. I am unable to stop crying.
