We are in control of so very little. We are buffeted about by forces – call it fate, God, chance, whatever you wish – that do not seem to care about what we want to happen. It seems insane to get upset and stew over politics, or much else for that matter. Why bring misery on yourself? Life is hard enough. Be easy on yourself. Be kind.

You do what you can. If you fall down, get back up again. And do so with good cheer and a light heart.
