As humans we feel like we need to be in Control of our future. If we are not we feel lost. This C0ntrol issue seems to overlap by causing other issues for example, doubt, fear, and setting the bar too high and we end up feeling like failures. We know we are not in Control of everybody and everything. Our mind says go ahead give it a try. Its a silent challenge which can often trip us up and take us off focus of ourselves. So, subconciously we take the bait. It is kind of funny because it is not like we are bored, we do have plenty of things to do. It is like the story of Adam and Eve. The temptation was not to eat the apple but wanting to be in Control of their own destiny, the Apple of Control got her.
Each day we sit down and ponder all the things we need to do. Some of us make a list of things that are priority. Normal or not, some of us brainstorm with a pen and paper anything that comes to our minds. This list gives us a false sense of Control because it usually involves ourselves and other people in our lives.
Who are we kidding????? We have no Control over other people. We are not intentionally trying to be offensive by including other people in our lists, its that Control Bug. Funny, other people do not even know that they are on our list. We may have good intentions but really who asked for our opinion anyway? People are their own bosses.
My future is in my hands, no one elses. I only have the right to Control me, now that is empowering, I am the authority over me so in essence I am in Control of my future. Any mistakes, failures or changes that need to be made are in my Control. This releases me from any condemnation from Control.
I wish You all Freedom from the bug of Control.
So be encouraged today….take Control of You. Whatever reminders you need, stickers, posters, anything to remind you throughout the day.
So tomorrow when I wake up and reach for the pen and paper, I will write down the priorities that I want to happen. The vision for my day. I will prepare mentally, emotionally and spiritually during my quiet time. My destiny will be created by my choices. This is the Control I desire to reach my vision for my life. It may require hard work, some changes, however, it is freeing to know I don’t have to try and Control anyone else.
