You can’t ask for something that can’t be given and expect to get it. If funds are tight at the office, don’t ask for a raise. If a person just isn’t interested in you, don’t ask for a date. The weather isn’t going to change, so don’t hope for rain. Today is all about accepting things the way they are and moving on. The only satisfaction you’re going to get from this day will come from the things that you can control. You have more power than you realize.
