You're not going fast enough. ツ



"If everything seems under control, you're not going fast enough" -Mario Andretti

I love this quote. It reminds me of the few times that life is "under control" - when we are asleep and when we are dead. I think that a full life always involves losing control. You cannot control love because you really cannot control people. The older I get, the more that I am confronted with the uncontrollable nature of our health. And we certainly cannot control the future or the time of our death. So why not say it out loud. Go ahead. Say it. I am not in control! There. Do you feel better. I hope not. Life can be scary. It can also be wonderful when we let go of the little control that we try to exert over things that are not meant to be controlled. ツ

  1. Such strong urges to be in control; so little we can control. Reminds me of a saying I like: Want to make God laugh? Tell him what you are doing tomorrow."

  2. Your sentence "You cannot control love because you really cannot control people" is where I am having issues in my life. I AM NOT IN CONTROL.....do I feel better? NO! Growing old is not easy and I spend a lot of time thinking about my future here and what I can do to live each day to the fullest.

    1. Amazing to me Gregg, how God takes our bad choices, sins and mistreatment by others and uses them to make us like Jesus.
