I can't keep from getting knocked down...but I can make sure I get back up.
I can't stop time...but I can try to make the most of it.
I can't be what I'm not...but I can work toward being what I'd like to be.
I can't make my apartment look as though one very tidy person lives in it...but I can get cleaning help from the four other not-so-tidy people who do live in it.
I can't write The Great American Novel...but I can write every day.
I can't control everything...but I can control how I react to a lot of things.
I can't protect each child from every little thing...but I can be there to talk through the little things and the big ones.
I can't do it all...but, as it turns out, I can do a lot.
