#WednesdayWisdom: Lack of control sucks.


My mom is being transferred to the hospital again as I type. I have no idea how serious it is, I have no idea if she will stabilize. All I know is a quicksand situation is shifting again right under my feet.

This morning I read that the Chernobyl nuclear plant seized by Russian troops has lost power. There’s a risk of a nuclear disaster.

Near and far it seems like nothing is within my control. I can’t improve my mom’s situation. I can’t improve Ukraine’s situation.

I can’t improve the world’s situation.

The best I can do is type here and complain about it. That’s sure to help.

It’s like being caught in a whirlpool, and the whirlpool just keeps getting bigger.

I guess it’s not terribly insightful, I’m sure you also know that lack of control sucks. I’m sure you’ve felt it while waiting to hear about something you can do nothing about.

All we can do is acknowledge it together: lack of control sucks.

Have as wonderful a Wednesday as is possible for you today.
