Things we can contol in our lives

It's a rainy weekend. It has been constantly raining for the last few days and you know what it means when there's rain — more and more sleep ...  NOT.

I wish I could afford to do that but the last two weeks have been pretty busy for me. I've had so much stuff coming in which means, work, photoshoot, and deadlines. I'm not complaining because all these are disguised as blessings in my life, although there are really times when all I want is to lay in bed all day and just do Netflix and chill. Unfortunately, I cannot do it because  - - bills! haha.
In our lives, there would come a time that you will experience such. actually ang babaw nga lang ng problema ko - ang gusto ko lang ngayon, full time tulog, haha. But guys on a serious note, I know some may be experiencing harder time. Some may have those hurtful, frustrating, offensive, manipulative people in our lives. That no matter how hard we try to surround ourselves with positive and kind people, there will always be those who will disrespect, insult, berate, and misuse you if we allow them to. 

We may, for a variety of reasons, not be able to avoid them, but we can determine how we interact with them and how we allow them to interact with us.

Just a reminder that when times get tough, there are still things we can control. So, how to take control of your life and stop being pushed around?

I've listed down some of the things or events in our lives that we may control:

- Sleep routine
- How you speak to yourself
- What you eat.
- Social Media (who you follow)
- Your mindset
- The way you treat others
- Your level of honesty
- Your outlook
- How soon you pick up the pieces when you fall 

Learning to set clear firm boundaries with the people in our lives at work and in our personal lives is the best way to protect ourselves from the negative effects of this kind of behavior.

It's Monday tomorrow - let's all spread positivity in life.
