Quote of the Day: Letting Go of Control

Quote of the Day: Letting Go of Control

We are meant to have the exact life we want, but one important lesson to attaining everything we want is the faith in knowing it will all work out in the end.  As cliche as it may sound, if it hasn’t worked out yet, then it’s not the end!

Sometimes we want something to happen so bad, but everything happens at the EXACT moment that it is supposed to happen.

I like controlling things, and sometimes the less I feel that I can control, the more stressed I get. Over the years, I have learned to just let my faith guide me, and to let it be.  Yoga and meditation really helps with this because it reminds you and teaches you how to be present.  When you’re present, you let go of the need to control things.  You just take it as it is, and appreciate it for what it is.  After letting things go, I found that opportunities would spring up when I least expected them to. As it turned out, they were always exactly what I wanted when I let go of the control and resistant toward it.

I think that this quote can help us quit worrying about anything that stresses us most.  Whether if it is a job we want, a relationship outcome, or getting into a school, it will happen as it is supposed to.  What this does NOT mean is to sit around waiting for something to happen.  It means make goals and strive to achieve them, don’t worry about how you will get there just know that you will!
