Our life is so dynamic and everyday seems to be a new adventure where we find new meanings and challenges in our life. There are also so many things in life that we can change and some things that we cannot change at all no matter how hard we try. Are you in control of your life right at this very stage? What are the things in your life that you have total control? Do you sometimes feel that you are not in control of your life and that events just passes you by? Picture credit: simpleprogrammer.com

I would really like to think that I am, but I doubt it. Life is not a straight path, it does throw us some unexpected curves.

We like to think we're in control and master of our fate, but for the most part, we're really not. As @TiarasOceanView said, life is life and most of it happens without our consent.

@1creekgirl That's true my friend and there are really so many things that are beyond our control like the sudden turn of events or some twist of fate in a manner of saying.

Yep, I am in as control as a human can be regarding his or her life. Being retired makes being in control a lot easier.

@Corbin5 That's good to hear my friend and I think being retired gives you the luxury of time about almost everything in life my friend.

For the most part with the help of Jesus and Prayer I would say I am, and one of the reasons my life is now getting back on key to where it needs to be.

I have realized that one can never be in total control all the time at least that is my personal experience because certain things are beyond us.

I try to control my life at least financially to support my family and me, and try to maintain my health with proper nutrition and exercise, and also tries to educate my children. But unfortunately there are many unexpected things that I do not control but every new situation I try to treat it under self-control.
