We've all been there: a white knuckled grip on the steering wheel as we stare hopelessly at the unending stream of taillights ahead of us in traffic that Will. Not. Move. Walking around in a perpetual fog of despair because we so desperately want to start a family but can't. Moving through life on the verge of tears because a loved one is facing an terminal illness, and there is nothing we can do.
Despite our best efforts, we cannot manage the universe. And while we seek comfort in manipulating the details that are within our power, we drive ourselves crazy striving to change things over which we have no control.
Next time you find yourself up against circumstances you cannot change, try letting go. You can't affect the outcome, but you can improve your state of mind...
