There are precious few things we have control over.
Most of us have control over what we put in our bodies, what we put in our minds, who we let in our lives.
We like to think we have control over what we say and do — how we react or respond to the events that life throws at us.
But some things are terrifyingly out of our control, no matter how much we prepare for them or how much attention we pay to them when they arrive.
Sometimes, the only thing we can do is turn up and jump off and hope that the Universe has prepared a landing soft enough that we don’t get smashed to bits.
The only thing we get to decide in those situations is: swan dive or cannonball?
