Great reminder today from Todd Stoddart’s The Blank Page – as I struggle with trying to control the outcome of a few things myself.
Ugh, this stuff can be hard…
My thoughts today were filled with fear.
It became so clear to me why I have been so tense. How come my muscles are sore and my shoulders are always cramped? I’m tense and stressed about so many things I can’t control.
Today in the float tank, I suddenly remembered that sweet and enlightening lesson. The lesson I have to learn over and over again.
The only thing I will ever be able to control are my actions. That’s it. I can’t control the outcome. I can’t control what other people do.
I have no control. None.
So why not just accept the outcomes to be whatever they will be? What more can I do?
Anything more is simply wasted energy.
