trying to trust.

Sometimes you have to quit it with the lists, the research, the plans--all the detailed outlines of where you want to be and what you want to be doing in the next day, week, year, decade. Sometimes you just have to throw up your hands and trust. Trust and believe that, yes, things will work out the way they're supposed to--maybe not right away, and maybe not in the easiest way. But they'll work out.

Because only so much of it is in your hands.
And the rest of it, well--you've got to just let it go.

Good morning!

I love this post... as my wedding is coming up in August and I am sure that I will be running into all kinds of things that are out of my hands. Boy, do I ever love to-do lists too!
I'll keep this post in mind if the sky feels like it is falling in on my wedding day just because it is raining, etc. We'll just go where the wind takes us and I'm sure everything will turn out lovely!

Just what I needed to start the morning.

Randomly discovered your blog a month ago and I just have to say. I love it! Every bit of it! You are so talented, fun and wise. If we lived in the same place we'd be friends for sure. For now we can be e-friends! haha.

this post came at the right day. I'm waitting for a call to know if i got a job or not. This afternoon it's not an afternoon, it's an eternity. I'm so nervous but i've done everything i could, not it's all about trusting and believe, and if it doesn't happen, then this wasn't meant to be :)

This is probably the hardest thing for me, I'm a tried and true life planner, but you're right... we can only control so much. Great thought for the day!

I read this yesterday morning and then after lunch, I was given a promotion at work. Coincidence, I'd like to think NOT. :)
