One of the things I’m trying to learn this year as I work toward a POSITIVE LIFE is learning to let go of the need to control everything.
Yeah, I had to laugh at that a little bit.
I am the queen of control. Nothing causes me more stress than a situation I can’t control. Actually, I think that’s true for most people. I’m slowly learning to sift what I can control and what I can’t, and breathing away the frustration of what I can’t. One example: I can’t control how many words flow from my fingers into my manuscript every day. What I can control are the hours I put in at the computer. It’s frustrating sometimes—I want to make faster progress, get farther, finish sooner. But I can’t.
On the other hand, sometimes I get a surprise: more words than I wanted. And that’s a day to celebrate! 😊
