We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us. ~Joseph Campbell
I can sometimes fall into that trap of trying to control certain aspects of life. I recognize that the need for control may come from the fear of missing out. Missing out on some idea or attachment I’ve created towards a part of life that I hope to experience.
When I’m not in nature I catch myself all the time attempting to control these experiences. Every time I wander outside, this control fades away and my heart, instincts and gut take over. Maybe that’s why I seem to discover magical places at magical times. Or, maybe it’s always magical and I’ve surrender some level of control to actually see that which is always there. Whatever it is … I’m truly grateful for the opportunities to let go and simply be with that which is around me.
