During my vacation I have learned a very valuable lesson- Sometimes you just have to let go and enjoy. I have noticed this is the “island mentality”. Life is too short to take so seriously and if you are busy controlling its very aspect, you will miss out on all the fun. I have known many people who go through life controlling the people in their lives, their situations, and/or anything they possibly can. More often than not, it is done with good intentions. Yet not anything or anyone enjoys being controlled and eventually resentment forms. Friends, be secure in your life. Trust that sometimes life has a silly whimsical way of working itself out. Even when it doesn’t because sometimes it won’t- I think I just channeled Dr. Seuss ;). Whatever the outcome results in, IT WILL be something you can handle- trust me. In the wise words of Woody Allen, “If you want to hear God laugh, tell him your plans“.
So friends, if you are trying to micro-manage every aspect of your life- stop, take a deep breath, and let it go.
