Control is a funny thing. Last night I tried to control myself while I sat a watched an intramural basketball game with BYU Freshman ward 101 there to support the other team (oh the curses being said in my head…). I feel like I have control of my eating habits right now. I try to feel like I’m in control when it comes to boys. I do not have control of my work schedule right now, which is taking over my life (which I knew would happen, but still)
At the end of the day, I realize there is very little in my life that I have control over….and guess what: THAT’S OK.
One thing I do have control of is my attitude, and I’ve learned that no matter the situation – good or bad – my attitude can make a difference…which in a tricky way gives me a sense of control. I love working the system. I also have a theory that control and confidence work hand in hand. We can talk about that another time…but I’d love to hear your thoughts on the subject.
