Losing Control

August 25, 2012

I am a control freak!

Ah, that feels so much better for getting that out. Mind you, for any of you that have met me you’re probably not that surprised (maybe relieved that I said it first).

I wasn’t always a control freak, I was once the happy go lucky, carefree, risk taking girl. I’m not sure what changed or when it changed. I do remember it becoming more evident when I had Roo. Controlling feed times, nappy changes, naps and even times when we could go out for fresh air.

I am, however trying to loosen the grip I have on the reins to my families life. So yesterday whilst on a girlie trip out with Roo I decided to kick back and let loose… I went on the zip wire in the play area.

Whilst you all may not think that this is a big step, to me it really is. The fear of not being able to control speed, direction, bashing into the tyre at the bottom, falling off or making a complete tit of myself was thrown out of the window.

I smiled, I laughed, I had fun!

    I’m laughing- this post resonates with me so much… apart from, unfortunately I’ve always been this way! My friends celebrated when they met my OH- the ying to my yang- now with the three I am frequently texting that I am running late… although most would agree I’m still a control freak- it’s just tapered now.

    I’m pleased to hear I’m not the only one. Mr Boo is the complete opposite, you could knock him over with a feather, only gotten a little more assertive in the last few years when Roo realised she could walk all over daddy
