Do you ever feel like your life is spinning out of control? For me, I am there. Not even in orbit of how life was “supposed” to go. Instead, I am grasping for a rope to pull me out… Or so I thought.
I have found that there are to many things beyond my control. I cannot control how others feel, nor can I control their actions. I cannot control what happens to me, per say. But I can control how I react to the events around me. If I chose to focus on the bad, that is all I see. By shifting my focus to something that is positive, I can also see that. Right now, life is a little chaotic. It is not predictable. It also does not fit into my pre-designed plan. But, it is my life to plan. One that I do enjoy and one that I hope will work out for the better.
Control is something we all seek. But by being able to walk away from the desire to dictate ever moment, one can experience a sense of freedom. By letting things happen simply as they will, life is not as difficult. There might be set backs, yet it is a small stone in a much larger river.
How about you? Do you let the setbacks stop you from crossing the river, or do you find a way across?
