What does it truly mean to take control of our lives? I think the idea of it is not what we make it out to be. It’s the balance of letting go and knowing when to stand our ground. Somehow that makes us in control.
When I was growing up, I hid my emotions a lot and didn’t understand how to healthily deal with problems. I was passive aggressive, sometimes mean and just very unhappy. I’ve learned now that voicing how I feel actually puts me in a place where I’m in control of my life.
I don’t stand for bullshit anymore, whether it’s my friends, relationships, jobs, experiences, basically whatever comes my way. As painful and as scary as it can be, I put out into the universe what I want, let go of what is not right for me (usually I have a gut feeling) and somehow it comes back to me in a beautiful (dysfunctional) way.
I know I say this a lot, but I will never settle for less than I deserve in any part of my life. News flash: you shouldn’t either. Life will reward you for doing what’s best for you…and no it’s not selfish.
Here’s me just twirling around (totally in control) sweating profusely which you somehow can’t tell. Nailed it.
