An Inspirational Reminder This Fall

Something about the change of seasons has reminded me:

Relax and calm your anxieties. Stop pushing for things to happen. Stop worrying that things won't happen. Detach from the outcome you so vehemently hold on to. What will be, will be. Everything has its time and everything has its course.

All you can do is try your best. Smile for as much of it as you can. Invest your energy into finding humor in situations, instead of angst. And when you decide to loosen your grip on imaginary control, and let life be, and let life breathe -- things will magically come together with ease and grace.

It is fall. The leaves are changing. Our lives are shifting. And everything is exactly where it is supposed to be.
