I don't know about you, but I like being in control, and the things I don't have control over have a way of making me, how shall we say, nuts. I like plans, and when plans fall apart I can get a little cranky, not necessarily for the activity the plan centered around, but for the plan itself. I like order, and I like routine, so I was surprised to feel a weight lifting off when I decided to really work on worrying less about things I can't control. I say less because hey, nobody's perfect. I also have noticed I'm more productive, because I am learning to channel I-have-to-do-something energy into things I can control. For example, you will notice that I am blogging once a week for the entire month of December. I am doing that because I am channeling that energy into reaching you, my readers. And heck, writing in general is always a good thing.
