Whenever I hear the word control, I am reminded of the phrase, "If you have to control it, it is already out of control." If I am trying to control something, it means that I think I have the power and for me that is an illusion. Even when it comes to my own feelings and emotions, I have to ask my Higher Power for help.

Many times I was the victim of other people's decision and choices. I try not to play the victim role any more. I try not to go into a pity party and the oh woe is mes. When something happens, I can either accept it, detach from it, or resent it! I am given freedom of choice in today.

If it is something with my own life, I can ask for help to change it, put on a blanket of denial and act as if, I can grieve it and let it go. I can look at why it is happening. Did I do something to cause it? Can I cure it? Can I control it? Generally it is no. If I did have a part in the situation, then I need to look at what I need to take responsibility for my own actions, clean my side of the street, make things right with my God, make amends where needed.

If it isn't my stuff, I can't control it. If it is then I need to take it to my Higher Power and ask for help. When I surrender, I am empowered to do what I need to do for myself.
