Life with little ones is anything but predictable. When our whole world is at the mercy to our children, our environment, and our to-do list, many of us tip into control-mode to try and get through.

When we can’t control what’s happening in our day, we end up trying to control the tiniest things – and burn ourselves out.

Over the years, I have come to realise that I have very little control over anything in my life, except one thing: how I react. That’s it.

And whilst that can feel scary at first (what do you mean I have absolutely no control over how this is going to work out?), it is also quite liberating.

So if you are finding yourself tipping into control mode – or it’s cousins perfectionism and anxiety – then this episode is for you.
