boy did this hit home...

This was the post for yesterday, Positive Thoughts.
This really stuck a cord with me, not only for doing so, but letting this be done to me.
Good words..
I wish you the ability to let go, the ability to allow yourself to allow life to do its thing without you attempting to control the outcomes of everything that goes on around you.  I hope that you always will be able to recognize the situations over which you truly have no control, and try to let them be, accepting the outcomes as they are, and not judging them based on what you wanted them to be.
I wish you the ability to see when attempts to control are appropriate, and when things are best left alone.  I wish you the ability to allow things to occur without your input; sometimes our most important contribution is simply to observe.  We can support and love without telling others what to do, without trying to help them in every facet of their lives; we must let others learn in their own ways and make their own mistakes .  Just as we don't accompany our children to every single class in school that they attend, we don't need to be there to guide them through every one of life's lessons.
