She threw in the towel and gave up the illusion that she had any control, whatsoever, over what other people thought of her. And the peace and quiet inside her head was delicious. - Queenisms™  Queenisms are jolts of inspiration, through original quotes for women and vintage images by authors Kathy Kinney and Cindy Ratzlaff.

We let the notion of what other people might be thinking take up an awful lot of space in our heads, and in our hearts. And, the truth is that we have no control over “people, places or things,” as they say in 12 Step groups. The only thing we have control over is our own reactions to the events of our lives. So fretting, fearing or feeling hurt by what others might be thinking is just throwing away our own peace of mind. If we are living our lives the best we can, listening to our own inner guidance, setting strong boundaries on our time and resources, sharing our light with the world and otherwise trying to live a life of joy, then all the opinions in the world just cannot stand between us and joy.
