The Things I Can’t Control (#208)

I can work hard 9-5, type until my hands and wrists are fatigued. I can actively reach out to my friends when I’m in need of support. But, there are things in life we can’t control.

I’m grateful when those things not only go well but highlight meaning or purpose. It’s important for me to recognize them as a higher power, the Universe, to strengthen my belief in what I can’t explain. Sometimes these signs are worth listening to and sometimes I just feel lucky. Whatever the reason may be, I’m grateful to be exactly where I am.
