I Have the Power

A  L  O  H  A !
 “ Discipline
 is remembering
 what you 
want. "

David Campbell














" The best day of your life
 is the one on which you decide
 your life is your own.  
No apologies or excuses.  
No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. 
 The gift is yours -
 it is an amazing journey -
 and you alone
 are responsible
 for the quality of it.  
This is the day 
your life really 
 begins.  "

Bob Moawad











" Discipline 
weighs ounces, 
regret 
weighs tons.  "

" Self-control is strength. 
Right thought
 is mastery. 
Calmness 
is power.  ”

  James Allen

Awesome Power
is mine.

You can have it
too-
 though not without
decision
and effort.

No matter what happens
it is within my
Awesome Power
to Behave as
I Choose.

A Rude person
cannot MAKE me
rude.

An angry
or a sad person,
even one I love,
cannot MAKE
me feel those things;

To do so would be
a mistake-
not love.

I can respond
with love,
and private
complete forgiveness
 no matter what-

Even in regret.

 I am also free to
leave.

But another person
is not responsible
for my mood.

I am.

Only I have that power;
 I choose to accept it.

What awesome powers
have YOU developed?

Life is certainly a tremendous responsibility. I like the quotes on discipline. For some of us, it takes a lifetime to master it.

Hope you're having a good day.

This is such a beautiful post, Cloudia. It's very much a Buddhist philosophy and something I can easily relate to if not practice as diligently as I should.
