On letting go.

As human beings, we more often than not try to control everything.

Our thoughts, feelings and emotions.  Our words, actions and behavior.  And sadly the future, believing that we can control the direction of our lives and how others may feel, react or treat us.

The only real thing we have control over is cultivating our ability to let go.  We may not need to let go of people or things, but we may need to let go of analyzing potential outcomes and dwelling on what if’s.

Life truly is one day at a time. We can plan, set goals and prepare, but that’s just a framework within which we stay focused and work toward.

When it comes to other human beings and relationships, it’s a different story and can be quite complex.  We can drive ourselves crazy, growing obsessive and more confused by the minute.  Or, we can learn to let go.

When faced with life’s many challenges, allow the feelings and emotions to visit.  Heck, they may even stay a day or two. Let them.

Then let go.  There comes a time when we need to trust that the universe and our good Lord will steer us in the direction that we are supposed to travel and only then will we find ourselves on the right path.
