Control – What the fuck just happened and why should it bother me so?

This is part two of this series of monologues about what it’s like to live in one’s own mind. I just talk, think,, talk more, and it makes little sense. But it helps me figure out what’s what. If I’m lucky.

Control.

what is control

or rather, the lack of control, the feeling of powerlessness.
Not having control
Lack of control ccan be anything from not being paid what you think you deserve at work.
not getting the grade that you thought that superb essay was worth at school.
Not being able to deal with your children, or other people around you that just won’t behave the way you’d want them to.
It can be anything.
Control over.

Maybe you’re sick.
Maybe someone else is sick.
A lot of sick.
Maybe something is just going to hell.

You lose power, you lose control.
But thats… that’s the time to let go.

To let it be what it is.
You can not have control over other people.
Not in a deep way.
Not in a fundamental way.
You can influence other people and events.\
But you can’t have control.
Because…

It is what it is.
It will be what it will be.
And you can’t live that way.
Because things will happen, things will move on, people will change, whether you are there or not.

It is what it is.

But remember: When one door opens, another door invariably opens.
So, be in the moment.
Realize that you cannot change the world.
You can only change you.

And that’s ok.

Imagination

I rarely talk about this. I can’t seem to make it clear in my own head, never mind explaining it so it makes sense. However, I believe that a lot of people live it. Some are worse off than me. But it is what it is. And these are my thoughts right now. Selfcentered and confused as they may be; sometimes I just need to get it on tape, as it were.

Imagination is a funny thing, isn’t it.

Quite amazing.
As far as creativity and the occasional release of thought and emotions.

If you think about it.
This galaxy is fucking big.
But you can hold it in your mind.
And yet

it is what it is.
Things are the way they are.
It is what it is.
Imagination can also be your worst enemy.
Fucking you up big time
Anxiety and fear.

It all comes from imagining the worst.
imagining what might be, what could have been, what should have been, what was, what wasn’t.
And it’s never quite correct.

It’s

perception.

It can heal, It can destroy.

and that’s my thought of the day.
I’m trying to train my imagination to make things better, so I can feel better, so I can get better.

And it is working.
It is working.

This is just a quick note to inform anyone and everyone that I’m still alive and present. Hear the birds in my backyard. After some health troubles I’m slowly getting stronger and motivated.

Until next time.
