Control

Have you ever felt boxed in? Right now I don't actually feel this way but on occasions I do. Maybe boxed in isn't the best of expressions, my life at times looks like the desktop on my computer; lots of different boxes all over the place.

I would like to drag all the boxes into one very neat folder but the reality is that it just wouldn't make sense. Life is not meant to be neat.

Life is messy, sometimes chaotic, even the most ordered people I know have messiness in their lives. Admittedly they seek to bring control but then to me they just appear a little uptight.

How much of our lives can we actually control?

Life is to be enjoyed, of course there are boxes, try to kick them down as best you can and don't let anyone put you in one, but on occasion just curling up in a box is a good idea, just don't stay there!

A friend sent me this the other week, I liked it:
"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming " WOO HOO ", What a ride!!!!"

If you need a little bit of cheering up watch this, I suggest you sit down get comfortable, pour a glass of wine and watch for 7 minutes, it will be good for you. Of course if you are at work just use headphones and don't get caught drinking. Finally if you don't drink and think wine is evil pour a glass anyway pray for it to turn into water if that doesn't work go ahead and drink it, it may help you loosen up and lose a little of that control thing you've got going on.

enjoy it's the voice of God:

Check out Lazyboy TV. Similar to this. You can get the album from ebay. I'd recommend the track 'Underwear goes inside the pants' if you prefer itunes.
