What an amazing day! My wife Miriam did a superb job. The midwives and the staff at the Gozo Maternity Unit are not just experts but are professional, caring and so supportive in such moments.
Releasing over-responsibility - giving permission to yourself to be free from an overresponsible sense of obligation, duty, or requirement to make everything "perfect'' in your life and the life of others.
No perfectionism - Allowing yourself to rid yourself of the perfectionistic need to control every aspect of your life so that nothing goes ``wrong'' in it.
Getting rational about what you can and cannot do - becoming realistic about what is and is not your obligation or duty to correct, change, or control.
Accepting your powerlessness - over things and handing these things over to your Higher Power.
Handing it over to God - which is no longer taking direct action to effect a change but handing the situation over to the goodness and mercy of your Higher Power in hope that the solution will rest in the Higher Power's authority and wisdom.
Declaring God is in Charge - admitting that you can only do so much and after that it is up to your Higher Power to take over.
Thank you to families, relatives and friends who visited us at the Gozo Hospital.
Victor, Miriam and son (still have to think of the name!)
