i used to feel guilty because i rarely went to Church.

i used to get stressed wondering why.

Then i realized most of the guilt (and stress) i felt was a choice about focusing on what i couldn’t control.

Gradually, and often exhaustingly, i’m letting go of that and focusing on what i can control, which is much less than what

What i can control is a much smaller and lighter load to carry.

What i used to carry – all those things, people, and circumstances i can’t control has been shed and my burden is lighter.

The weight of trying to control what i can’t has been lifted.

While not easy, i have broken the chains of procrastination and have carved out being a role-model for our Son.
