    Feeling in Control

    I get anxiety when I feel that I'm not in control.

  • Trusty is out of my control.

  • I could spend more time training him.
    I could keep my stuff put away so he doesn't get it.

  • Having to be someplace at a given time (such as here, teaching) is kind of out of my control.

  • I try to limit the days I teach, but then someone goes fishing and their mother wants them to have a lesson on another day.
    I could say no to that.

    During the school year when I have to teach in the afternoon, it seems to help to plan some knitting time before and after the lessons so I have to be here to knit rather than to teach.

    If something is coming up later in the day, all I need to do is set a timer at the last minute to get ready for it and do my own thing until then. Currently what I do is stress out the whole day until it comes up.

    Matthew 6:31-34

    31: Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

    32: . . . for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

    33: But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

    34: Take therefore no thought for the morrow; for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient until the day is the evil thereof.
