Letting Go

Letting Go

There's this fear that if you let go of control, everything will fall apart. But it's not true. What happens when you let go of control is that you release the tension of uncertainty. You stop forcing it all to happen and instead let it all happen.

Releasing control can be scary at first, but then its freeing. Because you are no longer under the illusion that you can control outcomes. You are living in a state of accepting exactly where you are and expecting that you will come into serendipitous alignment with whatever is most meant for you. Let life surprise you.

Let It Happen

Let life be uncertain for a while.

Get lost and found again.

Repeat that.

Let yourself be taken with the flow of life and watch as it all lines up in the most surprising way that is better than all of your best laid plans.
