When Things Go Wrong And A Useful Mindset From Theatre…

The reality is that no-one can control how things unfold. And certainly, it seems that the entire world is getting a lesson in this right now.

Things going wrong is another way of saying “I don’t like this”. And because we feel what we think, that is the start of how stress and misery is caused. But, while we can’t control how the world unfolds, we can control our response to it.
