It seems that when I let go of outcomes and truly just go with the flow, life is a lot less stressful.
Now this seems counterintuitive, right? Planning ahead, scheduling and organizing are there to make things go smoothly. And mostly, this is true and quite reliable. However things inevitably don't go according to plan now and then (or every day for a week) and that is exactly when letting go is the right strategy. Things just fall into place, exactly how they are supposed to be, which isn't always the way we planned them.
It used to be I got great satisfaction from things going according to plan. But anymore, I am delighted by things going their own way, often against my plans, because it is much more fun and sometimes magical! So it seems you can teach an old gal new tricks after all. :)
