A friend of mine recently used the phrase “relinquish control.”

Those words stuck with me.

We get attached to our hopes and dreams.

We get attached to our wants and desires.

We get attached to our ideas and plans.

We get attached to pictures in our head and how we want life to look.

Attachment leads to disappointment and unhappiness.

We try to control everything.

We micromanage our lives.

Relinquish control.

Let go of the things you cannot control.

Let go and live.

Stop holding on so tightly.

Maybe there’s something bigger, better, and greater in store for us if we’re open to it and let it happen.

Let go and trust.
