Letting Go of Control

Here's what I suck at:  Giving up control. 

Here's what I need to practice:  Giving up control.

Here's why:  Control is only an illusion and I don't need to buy into it.  Also, cool stuff happens when you step back and get out of the way.

Long term benefits:  I'm still figuring this out.   Lower stress level?  More fun along the journey?  Focus on 'Being' rather than 'Doing [doingdoingdoing]'? 

What do you think the benefits of giving up control are?     Please shout it out in the comments. 

I'd like to invite you to join our Best Self facebook group where we can talk freely about becoming our best selves - and all the messy work that entails.  In addition, I have another group, The Well Balanced Artist, for creatives of all kinds and in all stages of their creative lives, who are trying to balance their art, business and personal lives. 


  1. Having your children grow into functioning adults is the best lesson in letting go of control.

  2. Similarly to Hope- allowing other people to thrive, make mistakes, and grow. Finding new priorities and perspective.
