You Get No Say

We try to control things. It keeps us sane. But I can't tell you how many times I've said to a client, "What if you had to accept that you couldn't control this?" This usually elicits a predictable reaction.

The biggest things in life seem to come with their own time tables. Finding love, having babies; the things we yearn for the most deeply are beyond our authority.

Right now I find myself amidst another waiting game. When I step back I can see that our life is pretty wonderful, but oh those other pieces, I just can't wait. 


  1. So true. I also find that {for me} it's easier to share that advice with others, than to accept it myself.

    Also, LOVE the new picture - that Stanford is a doll!

  2. Hoping you are finding some peace in the wait. I'm in the same boat. Well, I don't think exactly the same boat....but, I'm waiting. LOVE the new family picture. Just gorgeous.
