Let go of what you can't control....


Go with the flow, allow life to go at it's own pace, everything will work out, get out of your own way, what will be will be.

All of the above...

I have noticed that things go  more smoothly when I give up control, when I allow things to happen instead of trying to make them happen. 

It sounds easy, but really, it is not. I suppose it depends on what kind of person you are, whether you are a thinker or a doer.

Control is an illusion, and based in fear. People try to control situations because they are afraid of what will happen if they are not in charge. What do you think this says to everyone else involved? You are not the only one that can handle things. No one else can learn and grow if you handle everything for them. Besides, you can't handle everything yourself, the burden is too great. So just let it go.

If you are too attached to a specific outcome, this is still trying to control things. You are implying that you are the only one that knows what is the best result in this situation. Again, how is anyone to learn anything, if you are setting it all up, with the results based in your best interests? Let people have their lives and you can reclaim yours.

Take all that energy that you are putting into trying to control things and channel it into living your life; just as it is. Accept what is offered, and have faith that it will all work out in your best interest. Other people's lives will work out exactly as they need to, as well. You input is not required, it is not your life. Concentrate on your happiness, and yours alone. You will notice the difference and so will those around you. Today is a new day, enjoy it!
