It's a new day...

I remembered after writing my last post that I am a Type A individual (I MUST CONTROL EVERYTHING). Then, as I lay there trying to sleep, I thought that maybe I just need to "Let things go" and roll with "it"-it being life in general. I think I ask too many questions that either can't be answered or that have various answers (depending on the situation) that are neither right or wrong. We live in a time that "anything is possible", "nothing is quarenteed", and "change is constant". We have very little control, if any, on what life truly has in store for us. I used to think that "we are in control of our own destiny" but my views have changed. No matter how much you want something, how hard you work for somethign, there just is NO guarentee that the outcome will be what YOU think it should be. Sure we can influence, prepare for the "best outcome" but quite simply "shit happens". I think these days I want to learn to be more flexible, learn to be more in the moment, and less fearful of things that are WELL beyond my control. Sure it's ok to prepare for things I want/don't want out of life, remember not to take for granted that "things" have to work in my favor because I did this or that, and definetly be more concious of the decisions (ie reactions) I make for me and my well being.

  1. We cannot control the future. However having goals helps propel me to move forward. Sometimes I miss my goal, but each time I do, I learn a little bit more about myself. If it happens, I just brush that one off and strive for the next one. Having goals gives me motivation!

    Have a fit day!!
