When you can't control what is happening around you, challenge yourself to control the way in which you respond. That is where your true power lies. You can always control how you respond and how you view the situation.
If you've ever felt powerless about changing something in your life, I definitely recommend getting a copy of Vibrational Manifestation. It will blow your mind with how empowered it'll make you feel by the time you're through with the program.
