Let go

Sometimes you just have to let things go. This is something I'm working on, I always want to work things out, analyze them, plan them, get to the root of the situation, and I'm learning that sometimes it's best to just let go. We cannot control everything in life and the moment that we stop trying to is when the weight of the world that we thought we were carrying will suddenly be released. Because life is complex, tragedy happens, beauty abounds and we can't always know why. All we can do is accept what is, be who we are and let nature take its course.

"The mind can go in a thousand directions, but on this beautiful path, I walk in peace. With each beautiful step, the wind blows. With each step, a flower blooms."

-Thich Nhat Hanh
