Finding Peace in Losing Control

Lake Arrowhead, CA

Lake Arrowhead, CA (I loved this trip!)

I’m self-aware enough to know never to call myself “low maintenance.” 😉

I’ve always been a goal-setter and a go-getter. And I’ve always been my toughest critic.

Some of my most painful moments in life occurred when I didn’t achieve the dreams I’d set for myself. Small or large, it didn’t matter. My biggest fear has always been failure.

You may have already spotted it, but it took me a long time to realize that I was a control freak. And I’ve been in recovery for about 15 years. There are easy days and there are hard days, but I’m pretty sure that most days present some sort of control-related challenge. Though I know that the world would not be better off if I was in charge, it doesn’t always stop me from trying!

Can you relate?
