You can have your say,
but you can’t always have your way.

With the story of your life,
you don’t get to
write the whole book,
just your character.

Sometimes when I’m getting overwhelmed with all the STUFF I have going on, my best friend gently reminds me to create a list of everything on my to do list. Many of the things on my list involve attempts to manage the minutiae of everything unfolding around me, as if I really had the ability to control every outcome. Trying to control everything can be exceedingly frustrating. And exhausting. And impossible. Eventually, I’m reminded that I am at my best when I concentrate my energy and focus on the few projects that can most impact my effectiveness and enjoyment. As for all the rest of it? Well, I strive to L.I.G.: Let. It. Go.
I hope you can focus YOUR time and energy this week, and have your say about what matters most. And with everything else? L.I.G. I dare you!
