Let Someone Else Take Charge

Have you ever thought about, I mean, really thought about now, how much energy we expend trying to control everything around us?
On the flip side, have you ever considered what it would be like to let someone else be "in charge" for a day?

What would be the fear in doing so?
Is it that we fear we will lose the job or, worse, lose the attention? Perhaps it is that we fear that what lies beneath is just nothing to "write home about," so to speak, and so we have to spend time focusing on what everyone else is doing or not doing so nobody will get "inside" of us.

What if, however, letting the control go, even for a day, would add things to our lives instead of robbing us of them?
Things like, say, peace of mind. A release from the "need to be right" tightness in your chest?
Time to do something nice for yourself? Wow, these things seem really PAINFUL don't they?

Or just unfamiliar....

Just for today, let someone else take the lead for a change. You might be surprised just how long they've been waiting their turn.

  1. A good thought. I can simply listen and learn. No need to try to change another.
