Take Control

No link for this post, just some musings. I was thinking, as this category five hurricane bears down on the coast, that as human there are many things that we have little or even no control over. That realization is hard to face for the "control freak" in me. That at any moment my life is a speck in the great cosmos of life and can be snuffed out at a moments notice.

In many ways there is lots of stress tonight as I right this blog. I'm thinking of my children and others who are and may be without food and water and cool air for some time. I have no idea how this will affect my office or my patients and their lives. I am concerned for and about them all. They are my patients but also my friends.

I have sort of made a pact with myself as this hurricane heads my way with deadly force. The pact is that, I am going to redouble my effort from this point forward in my life to take control of things I do have control over. So many times I realize that the things I have control over I don't do anything with or about and I spend an inordinate amount of time trying to control things which cannot be controlled, or at least not to any sufficient degree.

I hope, if you are in a place in your life where you feel like you are out of control, you will take the next few days to decide to take charge of things you can control.

1. Maintaining and improving your relationship with God
2. Maintaining and improving your health and body
3. Maintaining and improving your family relationships
4. Maintaining and improving your financial health
5. Maintaining and improving your home and belongings that have been trusted to your care.

These are just some ideas. Make the committment now to take stock. For all of you in the path of Rita, our prayers and God's blessings will be with you.

That is a wonderful list of things to take control of! I especially like how you said maintaining and improving... Be as safe as you possible can while riding out the storm. Thinking of everyone down there in the path of the storm..
