We don’t write our own story in life. Life writes a story for us. We make decisions and those decisions tend to have consequences, but much of what happens to us happens to us.
We have some say over what happens in our life. But we have no control over where we were born, how our genes or cultural setting will affect us, or what economic opportunities will be available to us, etc.
All we can do is take it one step at a time and hope that some good opportunities will be available to us. And that we’ll be wise enough to recognize them and take advantage of them.
In the meantime, it’s okay to let go of our detailed plans. Our detailed plans are usually based on a desired outcome that will require us to change our plans anyway.
Keep learning, keep growing, and focus on having the right inner life. Other things will fall into place.
