During recent months I have been dealing with some health issues which have given me the wake- up call of, "You're not in control of your life!" As an individual who schedules almost every part of my day and who even has events and to-dos planned as far out as a year, this was a rude awakening.
What do you mean, "I'm not in control?!" I still wake up in the middle of the night bathed in a cold sweat realizing that no longer can I make specific plans. No longer can I smugly live secure in the knowledge that things will always be the way they always were -- pretty gosh darn good.
