I’m a control freak.
Go ahead, laugh if you want. I honestly never knew it until I started reading Karen Ehman’s Let. It. Go. Sure I knew I was an A-type personality and that I liked when things were done a certain way… if you called me anal I would have said, “Meh.” and shrugged. I had been called that before. But if you had told me I was practically Napoleon -
Karen uses the story of Adam and Eve to show why a woman is prone to over control and also why she should not.
Throughout the book, Karen is our control recovering mentor urging us to a more peaceful experience of a life lived out of control. I know what you're thinking. How can a life out of control be more peaceful?
Let’s put it this way: imagine a world where you didn’t have to be in charge of everything. Where things could be done by other people the way they envision it… scared? Me too. But let’s push past that fear of not having our way and imagine the joy that people in our circle will feel when they are empowered to do things as they see fit.
Can you see it? No more arguments about the “right” way of doing things. No more hurt feelings because of inflexibility.
Let. It. Go. is not just a book advising woman about how to let things go. It’s a manual that shows us how to take ourselves out of the driver’s seat in every aspect of our lives.
Do you feel that you know best in every area of your life? What are you waiting for? Pick up a copy of Karen Ehman’s book and learn to Let. It. Go.
