I am finding the older I get, the less control of situations I really do have. I am learning sometimes you have to hold on and see what happens during the journey.
This is tough for me. I like things in order to say the least. I am the person that keeps all the soup can labels lined up and hangers facing the same way in the closet. I know it seems a little like "Sleeping with the Enemy". I have always kept things very orderly. I have felt a level of control from this type of behavior.
I know that some level of organization is helpful. It keeps one from being late on your taxes or missing your cousin's wedding. It helps keeps day to day life, a manageable organized chaos.
I've learned this year, sometimes there are things we can't control. During these times, we have to learn to trust in our faith. We have to listen to our heart and accept what lies ahead. Each day is a new day. That's part of the excitement of life. It's like reading a great book. You are waiting to see what happens next. If you knew the end before you started, what's the point.
So I this year I have learned to let some things go. I still like being organized, but I am relaxing more about the little stuff. It makes living much easier. I have been able to really enjoy things. It's okay to jump on the merry-go-round and hold on for the ride!!!!
