My Way

A man is overheard speaking to himself:
“If things don’t go my way tomorrow I’ll be terribly upset”
Fool! You may as well be talking to the white cliffs of Dover or toss yourself from the top of the Tarpeian rock. Life cares not a whit for your tempest. You can’t control what tomorrow brings* but come what may, you can control how you respond.

*Please don’t say one can determine the future through prayer or positive thinking. Me cringes.
