I have really big huge goals for my life, and no idea how I’ll accomplish them. And that’s a good thing.
I’ve spent the majority of my life craving control, wanting every little detail to be precisely how I wanted it. This hyper-focused mentality yielded disappointment, burnout, a couple of psych ward visits, and one very loud and very public argument/meltdown with a self-checkout machine at Kroger.
When I let go, things move more easily. When I surrender, life just flows. Life is flowing as is; my sticky puppet-fingers only offer me the illusion of control. No matter what I do today, the sun will still go down tonight and come up tomorrow.
So that’s what this 365-day journey is about. It’s about relinquishing control, investing in the unknown, and learning about chance.
