This is a motto I so try to remember. You must take the good out of each day to have a more peaceful life. So it is that sometimes you have to let life happen instead of trying to guide it's direction. Sure we can plan for the future. Attend college in hopes of it providing us a good career. Save money for the dream house some day. And even make sure we travel in the right circles to find the man of our dreams.
With all of this it is still those curve balls that are thrown to us that makes life what it is. The career did not pan out after college. Thank God because you found out that the stress would have drove you over the edge in no time. You keep putting money back to find that emergencies happen. Yet your amazed when the house of your dreams (that you never thought of even) falls in you lap with little down and low payments. Perfect. And the most amazing thing is that you do find the man of your dreams. Not in church or that singles group. He is not a member of your clubs or organizations. No he attends a family funeral to provide moral support and you know he is the one right off.
All of this is the way life has happened for me. Happiness happens if you let it. You may wish on the stars but it is in allowing peace to be within that you find your true happiness. I loved reading Catch a Falling Star because it brought home that you can not micro manage you life. That when you let go and as they say Let God things fall into place. You may believe putting out good Karma brings it back to you. I just know that finding inner peace and loving each day sure does relieve the stress of life.
