Life really knows how to keep you guessing, doesn’t it? Just when you think you are finally starting to figure things out, you are thrown a giant curveball. There’s really no way to control the direction of your life. We all like to pretend that we have some element of control when in reality it is a fleeting thought. Even when you plan things down to a “t”, something still manages to come up. It shows how little we are in the grand scheme of things.
Sometimes it can feel scary, lacking a sense of control. It can be terrifying knowing some things may happen, and there is nothing we can do about them. At the same time, we learn to put a sense of trust. Whether it is in another person or a higher power. At first, we may feel vulnerable, but in time we begin to feel a sense of protection and care. Life cannot be tamed, the sooner we learn that the more peaceful we will become.
