As I was walking this morning, I was thinking about a similar topic to recent posts:
Alignment of your emotions to your mind.
Aligning yourself with time.
Although I was thinking outside of those boxes of thought, I realized how difficult it is to do both of those things.
Emotions are immensely powerful…
So is the mind.
What does this mean?
You are trying to align two powerful forces that often fight each other.
This goes the same for aligning your movement with time.
Again, two powerful forces that often fight each other.
This seems to be a tough place to stand.
How can we manage to align these things together?
It is helpful, but incredibly difficult.
The one thing I can say, that I try my best to do, is this:
Control what I can control.
I never want to force alignment of emotions with the mind OR my movement with the movement of time, but I do want to make sure I control what is in my court.
I can’t control the movement of time, but I can control MY movement in time.
I can’t control what makes me naturally feel something, but I can control MY choices.
There is always a ball in your court.
Whether it is one ball or one thousand, you have opportunities in front of you.
It is hard to always align yourself, make the right decision, be the best that you can be.
All we can do is take one ball at a time that is in our court…
Serve up the best serve we can give…
And take what the other side of the court gives us.
I hope you and I continue to do our best.
