I have an overactive imagination.
I dream up these elaborate scenarios of how my life is going to play out.
[Life List, much?]
Usually these daydreams are so fantastically wonderful and I get terribly excited.
What can I say? I romanticize and fantasize and dramatize various situations. I go through life wearing some crazy-awesome rose-colored glasses.
Come on now, I did go to theater school.
And then when things don’t go as I planned, I get off balance. I lose my footing. The seams start to unravel a bit.
I wish I could just chill out and take life as it comes at me, but I’m afraid that I can be a bit of a control freak at times.
Yesterday was one of those days. Such.a.mess.
Nothing went my way. Morning to night.
And I ended the day feeling defeated, disappointed, and a bit ashamed of myself for sulking and being such a grouch.
I need to get a handle on the fact that I’m not the one in the driver seat all the time. And that is so hard for me.
I’m usually pretty good about getting over things – I’m certainly not one to let things fester. Get on with your life. Everything turns out in the end.
So how can I avoid [or at least deal with] these situations where my path takes an unexpected turn?
My plan? Breathe. Get my mind off what’s eating me up. And not take things so personally.
It’s out of my hands.
And remember, things always look better in the morning.
And they definitely do today.
Okay and GO!
