It’s amazing how often and with how little thought we surrender our emotions to circumstance.

I’m reminded of Zig Ziglar’s example. “You wouldn’t let someone dump garbage on your living room floor, would you? Then why would you let someone dump garbage into your mind?”

Thanks for this reminder to take responsibility for our emotional lives. Great post, Michael!
