Controlling the impact

The Thames Barrier was raised for the first time this winter to keep London safe from flooding.

Yet another reminder that we can't control the weather, and yet we can do much to control the outcome of the weather.

In life as in nature

We can't control other people but we can do much to control the outcome of their behaviour on us. That is:
  • We can get angry at them, moan about them, gossip about them with others, scream at them or get stressed as a result of their behaviours. 
  • We can choose more resourceful behaviours, and manage the impact they have on us. 
Don't forget to raise your own internal Thames Barrier when that certain someone is next headed your way - you might just be surprised at the outcome.
