My Disobedient Body

My body is like a very disobedient toddler. My mind is like an impatient mother, wanting her unruly child to do what she says. Tonight my dad asked me to set the table for dinner. My mind knows where each person sits. I give myself the order to make plates go to each person. I plan to carry out the order from dad. However, my feeble body balks at this order. It wants to put all the plates on one end of the table and the cups on the other end. I end up looking like an idiot who can’t understand the concept that everyone is supposed to get their own place setting. I want my body disciplined to follow the rules. How do I get my body to cooperate? This is my biggest struggle.
