Hi, I’m Lara and I’m a Control Freak

I like to feel in control of my life. I like to know that I am the one making the decisions and I like to believe that I have a say in where my life takes me.

But there are so many things in life that I have absolutely no control over and I struggle to keep myself from going insane while asking “WHY?”

So it’s like…I don’t have control over when I blush. I just happen to blush approximately 4 million times more often than your average person.

And I don’t have control over how North Korea views the United States as a whole.

I have no control over life threatening illnesses and whom they choose to affect…and I have no control over everyone in this world and I cannot stop people from hurting other people.

It’s so simple to get caught up thinking about all things in life that we cannot control.

I get so caught up in these thoughts that oftentimes I forget about what I CAN control.

I can control the way I present myself in this world.

I can control the way I treat my friends and family when they are dealt a hard situation.

I can control the way I choose to spend my free time.

I can control the way I interact with strangers…and I can control my morals and my beliefs.

There are so many aspects of life that are out of our control…but who you are as a person is not one of them.

Compassion is contagious. You get back what you put out.

The only person responsible for the way you present yourself is the same person staring back at you when look in the mirror every morning.

“Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody else expects of you.”

Stop worrying about what you can’t control…and worry about what you can.
