Lost Control

I have lost control of a very important aspect of my life. You see, generally, Puppy and I have an understanding: I am the alpha. This is my house and she gets to live here. And she’s great at demonstrating gratitude, showing love and snuggling. But, there’s one area where I become the beta and I feel totally out of control. Sleeping. When we get into bed at night, I move her over so I have the space I need. Sometime in the middle of the night, while I’m sleeping soundly, Puppy uses that opportunity to take over. Often, I wake up in the middle of the night to find that I’m teetering on the edge of the corner of the bed where I’ve been nudged over throughout the night. And if I wake her when I move her, she’ll think it’s morning and be at the ready for breakfast and a walk. So I try to slowly inch her over just enough to make sure I don’t actually fall out of the bed, but not so much that I upset her sleep. I don’t let any person treat me like this. “Nobody puts Lauren in the corner!” Somehow, it’s Puppy for the win on this one. And while I wish it were better, in almost 13 years, I haven’t taken the initiative to fix the problem. In which areas of your life are you relinquishing control? What’s worth fighting for? #relaunchyourcareer #gratitude #relationships #coaching
