“You have power over your mind—not outside events. Realise this, and you will find strength.” – Marcus Aurelius⠀

You’re at work and your colleague has bought in some cakes, It’s your other colleges birthday and invited you out for drinks that night & the whole office has decided that they want a pub lunch today…⠀

it's the island life for me


You’re just sat there like “I’m trying to be good, damn it!”⠀
Maybe you even get annoyed because you really want to lose some weight yet theirs always something going on…⠀

Remember You have no control over whether or not it’s your colleagues birthday, you have no control over who brings what into the office and you cannot control where everyone eats for lunch.⠀

However, you have complete control over whether or not you eat the cake, whether or not you go out for a few drinks or whether or not you eat the pub lunch.⠀

Control your decisions, not your external environment⠀
