Henley – Invictus
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
Your mind creates the world you live in. Accept people and situations for what they are – just people, and just situations, that are coming from many other actions and reactions. Step out of the drama. Control your emotions. Control your thoughts. Control your mind. You don’t have to react to aggression with aggression. You don’t have to mirror or agree with the thoughts coming at you. You don’t have to agree with the opinion of others. You can accomplish what you want to achieve. You must stay stead fast in your own mind with the purpose of the life you want. Look toward that ultimate life. Remember what you want; a life of true happiness (add your own details here) . Purposely direct or change your thoughts and actions. Choose how to respond; react… and live with honor, and the purpose of becoming the better you.
May you always find yourself unafraid, mastering your fate, and captaining your soul.
Just a thought…
