Sometimes natural chaos comes with a voicemail message. The utility company called to say that the power in our neighbourhood would be off for several hours today while they replaced an electrical pole. So for me who runs a home based business I had to reschedule some things and then headed out to run a few errands.
I was in one of my favorite stores in downtown St. Albert, Crimson Quill, setting up a couple of workshops I’ll be doing for them in the fall and I explained why I unexpectedly had some free time on my hands.
“I have no power.”
Most of the time we really have no power over all kinds of situations:
other people’s behaviour & choices
and 101 other things.
Now don’t get me wrong.
I know I have all the power when it comes to certain things like my attitude or my choices – truly the most important things. It was just such a delightful reminder that there are so many things that are outside of my control. Not getting crazy about it and just letting them go is a way to keep things in balance.
A light bulb moment from the power company.
