Gain Control by Losing Control

It takes a lot of courage to trust that things will work out without knowing the answers to all your questions. It also takes a lot of courage to be open to possible developments that you had not anticipated.

Face it, it can be unnerving when you have a plan and it unfolds in a different manner than you expected because it took a different turn.

We all like it when things go according to our plans. But sometimes, it just happens that someone else makes a decision or takes an action that sets in motion a chain of events and next thing you know, your schedule has changed.

Be patient. Sometimes the changes work out just fine.

Sometimes we gain control when we lose control. Things that we had not planned on fall into place and we are happy with the result.

It's also interesting how sometimes pieces of information come to us that help us make decisions that we were not even searching for. Guess all you can say is that spirit must have intended for us to have those. So here we are. Once again making a decision that veers off our original course.

If we allow things to come to us, they will. Sometimes not being certain will get us where we want to be.

And we can gain control by losing control.
