30-Day Blogging Challenge Day 15: Bible verse

Any verse from the Proverbs is my favourite.

Proverbs 27:1 — Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.

This is one I tell myself daily. Being constantly strategizing and planning, I have honed my skill at estimating the time it takes to finish a task or arrive at a destination, so much so that this skill is almost to exactly accurate. This is why I get fidgety if something doesn’t go as I  scheduled.

That line from Proverbs reminds me that I shouldn’t overthink about things that haven’t happen yet. I don’t have total control of the future (as frustrating as it is) but only what I do in the present.

I think my extrovert son have inherited this sort-of-perfectionist trait from me.
