It can be scary to give up the illusion of control. But when we do, things tend to work better. Letting go is freedom.
Letting go doesn’t mean loose living though. And it doesn’t mean sitting on the couch waiting for things to happen.
It means not aggravating ourselves. Not tormenting ourselves. Not being resentful. It’s about letting go of the thoughts and emotions that make us miserable.
And it means not holding onto our expectations and strategies too tightly. It means living with an attitude of thankfulness — recognizing that whatever control we have, is limited. And that even that control is itself a gift.
