Dodging the Curve Balls

baseballSometimes life can throw some pretty significant curve balls. I wonder if the lesson in that is to drive home the truth of just how little control we really have.

We are the co-creators, the co-pilots of the lives we live. It’s our job to pay attention to our surroundings, learn the course we choose to take; know where we are and where we want to go, ensure that responsibilities are taken care of, and take action when we need to. And therein lies the question…

The pilot can change our course at any given moment without warning. When do we take action, and when do we let go? How do we tell the difference between an obstacle we need to push through, a challenge we must face, and a sure-fire sign that we need to stop and/or make a detour?

As I take a moment to stop to tune out the world around me and shut off the noise inside my head, leaving me to sit alone in silence, those are exactly the questions I ask within.

The message I receive is simple and clear, as it always is; Patience, learn to let go of the control you think you have, and trust that although you may have a plan, mine is greater.
