Wisdom Quote: What is Meant to Be

wbLet it Be

“What’s meant to be will always find a way”
― Trisha Yearwood

We often waste a great deal of energy trying to control our own lives and other people.  We worry about the unknown future. We attempt to create order in our own lives, and we desire others to behave as we expect. The reality of life is that the unexpected will always happen. The reality of life is that each of us has freedom to make our own decisions and behave as we desire. Most people will always attempt to do what they desire–unless they are unable, or threatened with punishment, or fear an undesirable outcome. I have learned to “let things be.” They will play themselves out, one way or another.  Both “The Beatles” and the “Buddhists” tell us to “Let it be.”—Dave H
