Yes, we are in control of our life, ourselves, and our happiness. We possess the power to choose which way to go, which thing to do, which thought to think, which word to say. We must realize this if we ever hope to really be free from the victimhood that we have learned to live with. As with any skill, self-control grows the more we exercise it. So begin anew today, this moment. We can and do control the choices we make that directly affect the quality of our life, the health of our self, and the extent of our happiness.
