I have this theory or motto or rant about life. There is a little backstory to this and it took some time to come up with but in its simplest form I will call it the 24 hour theory. There are times more often than not, where life doesn't go the way I planned, the way I have been envisioning, the way I was lead on to believe. No matter how good of a person I am, no matter what I do, I have no power over anything other than myself, and the way I adapt to life.
So when life happens and I begin to feel feelings, I create thoughts and those thoughts lead to actions. How long do I allow those feelings to flood my entire being? I say 24 hours, I will give myself 24 hours to feel all the feelings, think all the thoughts and act in the most rational way, without being irrational, a little self control can go a long way, in those 24 hours, but as long as I remember 24 hours later it is over I can keep myself in check. It is a new day, no matter how big or small weather it’s a headache or a heartbreak, I felt it, I thought on it, I acted on it and then 24 hours will start again and I go on living.
