“If everything seems under control, you’re not moving fast enough.” - Mario Andretti
I don’t disclose this very often, but when I was in high school I ran track and cross country. Before each race there’s a feeling of built up anxiety as you stretch out the nerves and wait in your block. The beginning of this year feels like the start of a race. Firing off like a bullet with nothing left behind but smoke floating in the air. Leaving me eating everyone’s dust- “Thats my girl, bringing up the rear” my mom would tell me after each race.…I was definitely NOT an athlete. It was mainly because I was too scared to push myself to the point where I didn't feel like I was in control.
So, here we are in the race against time. January is half over. I haven’t even broken my new years resolution yet, because I haven’t even come up with one! That’s how behind I feel. But its okay, I don't have to let the anxiety take over. Things will all be accomplished in their own time.
So, here's my point-Things are bound to get a little out of control, but that’s a good thing! It means changes are coming. Embrace it. We often forget we don't have to be in control. We can do our best and leave it with God.
