Just A Thought… The Darker It Seems The Brighter The Light

In winter, the nights are longer and the sunlight has only a few hours
to illuminate the day.

Emerging Into Grace

After the crazy busyness and hectic of the past weeks, I am enjoying it even more more to sit on my patio and let my inspiration flow for writing my post. I was just so relaxed that I emptied my spirit… and kept in empty… lol. So, I decided to pick a card getting inspired.

You Only Need To Believe!

We all have dreams. Even those people who say they had put their dreams at rest. That they still think of them confirms that their dreams are still alive. It happens that life shatters some specific conditions to realize a particular dream or expectation about the future. But only because this one of them cannot come true doesn’t mean we need to throw the whole dream box into the garbage. Sometimes we need to take detours, not knowing where they lead and why they have to be taken. However, no path walked is in vain. Sometimes the greatest dream lies in a sideway.

The Choice Is Ours

No mountain too high, no river too wide when it comes to realize our dreams. It may not be easy but as long as we pursue the goal there will be possibilities. I wrote a short metaphoric story regarding this topic and will share it with you today. Whatever is now does not define what will be. You can make it, if you only believe.

I took a walk through the forest. It was a beautiful early summer day. The sunlight found its way through the tiniest spaces between the already leafy treetops, and nature seemed to reach out its arms to me, full of energy. I perceived the humid, spicy scent of the forest air, which gave me a feeling of connection with this place. Although birds were chirping exuberantly and something was rustling in the undergrowth now and then, the atmosphere was so peaceful and harmonious that I almost had the feeling of being in a different world.

Love is patient, Love is kind…

love-timeline-cover-17

What is love? How can it be defined? I don’t know if we ever get its whole meaning or even an idea of it. But the 1 Corinthians, chapter 13 provides a profound insight into what love can be and how we recognize if it is love we feel or only an aspect of it. It gives a direction if we act out of love and if we live in a love that is life’s elixir and our origin. Love is all we really need. That’s why we do so much in order to receive love. We make sacrifices, fight, murder, die. Love is the basic need we all have in common. If we have love there is no need to compensate it with anything in the world. The real true pure of love makes every miracle possible. Then we have found the master-key to life. Read more ›

Do you know that? Either out of the blue or in a steady development new opportunities open up. You are getting offers for a new job or a better position, you see something that makes you think of taking new steps, of learning something new or of going bigger in business. An idea, a vision forms, and is ignited by the enthusiasm it brings. In your excitement, you are talking to a close person and… you only hear reasons why things won’t work out or get counted all the obstacles that “may” occur. Read more ›

Denzel Washington is one of my favorite actors. Right, who cares…lol. And what has it to do with my Monday post? After listening to a song on YouTube I stumbled over a speech of Denzel Washington at the Dillard University. Of course, I had to check it out and was amazed. I had no idea that he was such a fantastic motivational speaker. I am sharing the 8 minutes speech (with German subtitles) below. In general, he is talking about things we basically know but it is in the way he conveys and explains them. He nails everything in a way that reaches heart and mind at once. In point 2 of his speech, he said Fail Big. Read more ›

Journey

 

Looking outside the window

Dreaming of memories to be

Longings which tear my heart apart

Confirm what burns inside of me

 

Sometimes I only have my dreams

I follow step by step

Keeping the goal close to my heart

To push through obstacles and thread

 

Maybe your eyes cannot see yet

What’s shown already in your heart

But that is where you write the script

And where the magic stories start

 

Looking outside the window 

And smiling at the sky

The memories of things to be

Will never cease to make me fly

This is not going to be the usual romantic poetry I am sharing on a Tuesday. Also, my song choice for today has more the meaning of love in general and its healing and uniting effect. Therefore I want to share a poem I wrote some weeks ago. That love that we are and which connects us to the highest meaning of love which we can never lose. That love that makes sure that we can never really get lost because even in the darkest night it shines a ray on us. The only thing we need to do is looking at it and following it. Read more ›

The Fear to Succeed

Bildergebnis für what if you realize how powerful you are

So often we don’t start a project because we are afraid of failing. We are afraid of being questioned even before we started or before a result is shown. We are afraid of being criticised about how we do it or even THAT we do it. We are afraid that people are making fun of us because we are doing something they might have never dared to do themselves. Or we are afraid because our project also means showing a part of us which we kept hidden for a long. But there comes a time when all those fears are not strong enough anymore to keep us from going for our dream. They cannot keep us from stepping out of our comfort zone anymore. We are full of excitement and enthusiasm and yes, we try it with all our heart and passion. And then it happens…. the door opens up! Read more ›

From up there, you understand how everything works together in order to make it all a complete and how necessary every little thing is. Read more ›

You Are Stronger Than Your Ego

 

 

104803-Marianne-Williamson-Quote-Ego-says-Once-everything-falls-into.jpgI believe that the ego is not only the bad guy who needs to be fought. I rather think that it is a very helpful part we created over time. On one hand, it can support the path of the soul with its strong will. On the other hand, the ego can help to find out who you are and who you are not. It is a creation of the mind – your mind and your creation. That means that you have the power and can create it in each moment. It is created by thoughts and can, therefore, be controlled by the choice of your thoughts. The further away we are drifting from the true self the more power the ego has. It can show up unexpectedly although we think we already know that guy and its tricks. But in a certain situation, it appears reflexively before we even notice that we are already in its claws again. It is then to step back and see where we would end up if following its direction and what if we chose the direction of the self.  Read more ›

I’d Wait Forever

 

A mountain may take the sight

But it can never take our love’s light

 

A river may be stormy

But we’ll continue determined the journey

 

The days may be long, the nights even more

But there comes the time when we meet at the shore

 

And even though we’ve never met before

There’s a signal our hearts send from their deepest core

 

With invisible cords, they both reach out

Clasping each other and define the route

 

The path to each other is light and is straight

Nothing can keep two hearts from their fate

 

I have no doubt that love will arrive

How long would I wait? If I need, all my life

Forth or Back?

IMG_2541.JPG

We all are so often caught in our daily obligations or in the struggles we find in life. Even though we may know that after those struggles there comes the reward but being in the midst of them can affect our whole system, thinking, and feelings.

hard-roads.jpg

The longer it takes and the more burdening the situation becomes the harder it is to look beyond the situation. The path towards a goal can hold so many single paths within which are meant to be walked. So many obstacles are to overcome. It is like riding a bus. There are several stops until you reach your destination. The road may be bumpy and curvy at times and although you know why you went on that bus sometimes the only thing you feel is the sickness in your stomach which makes it difficult to be joyful because of the destination you are heading to.

56e2efd56e5c63b976643a09047da501.jpg

It is nothing new that we need to change something or go through changes in order to get to a new place. The more difficult the circumstances are the more we need to remember what we started this journey for. When all is getting harder and harder, when consequences are right in front us which will change life dramatically, when we see that we need to let go of something in order to grab that next liana to swing on then we often ask ourselves if this all is worth the pain. Those reflections are so very important. On one hand, they can tell you clearly what you don’t want to lose. Or they can confirm your decision and give you the power to keep going! You have that chance now and you don’t know if you ever get a new one in case you don’t take this one. Mostly those times when the pressure is building up and we are forced to review everything again is that time when we are the closest to an important change or insight! The increased insecurity feels like standing at an edge and it is either to jump or to turn around.

36556-27663-cm-serenity-change-people-me-social.png

It can be so difficult when you are standing on that edge because sometimes, either way, there is no way back. But however, even going back holds a change because you need to consider clearly why you are going back and that creates a different attitude. You look differently even to a known situation or to known circumstances. Although it may look like you are not changing anything something did change because you decided to go back for a particular reason. And this is the crucial point! Whatever decision you make when you are standing at that edge, know why you are making it! Don’t do it out of a resignation. Do it out of a clear intention. You were not led to that edge accidentally but in order to develop a clarity and therefore a developed attitude. You are evolving. As I said, those edges can show up several times during the same journey towards one and the same goal. We arrive at many crossroads and need to decide which one to choose. We need to be ready for that goal and all those bus-stops help us to grow for it.

c0d98b2964ec227c3d5f5c0b1d66a33e.jpg

We are no super heroes and sometimes even the most longed change can look like the biggest mountain. Take a time-out, meditate, recharge in nature, talk to others, spoil yourself a bit, and do everything that makes you smile. Because the most important thing is to detach from the situation in order to be you and to feel you. Only when you break out of that turmoil of thoughts you can feel yourself again. That is necessary to regain power and connect with yourself in order to hear and feel your inner voice which gave you that first impulse to start the journey. We are only insecure when we lose contact to ourselves. Remember there was a reason why you started the journey. Remember it and feel it again and after all that happened since you went on that path see how far you have come. Whatever you learned, whatever insight you gained is important for you to decide whether you stay on the bus or if you get off and take the next one back! There is nothing bad about getting back because you learned a lot on that trip which already changed something anyway! It is your path and your decision! And it is no one else’s business!

God Did Not Mean To Solve Our Problems…

6a00e0099839558833015432530641970c-pi

… BUT TO GUIDE US SOLVING THEM OURSELVES! THE ONLY THING WE NEED IS FAITH!

How often are we raising our hands and crying to God for help? But what do we do next? Are we waiting that Gods waves His magic wand and fixes everything just like a Genie “your wish is my demand”? Do we really think we realize the whole picture of the situation in which we might only play a tiny role? The situation might be part of a much bigger plan. Now if things do not change or dissolve as we desire we get the idea that God left us alone and is not interested in us. That is such a big misunderstanding. Read more ›

It Is Not The Religion – It Is The Interpretation!

god-has-no-religion

Some time ago, I shared a video of the Dalai Lama on Facebook. That video felt like a perfect follow-up to my post We Need To Heal The Cause – Not The Symptoms! The Dalai Lama talked about religions and terrorism. He stated what burns in all the hearts of faithful people. It is not the religion that makes terrorists. It is the fanatic idea of power that misuses religion for terroristic acts.

Dalai Lama: Religious violence: “Once you are involved in bloodshed you are no longer a genuine practitioner of Islam”. (This video is only 1 minute.)

All religions were created in order to spread the message of love. They have the use of keeping people grounded, teaching God’s (whatever God) words and reminding them that there is more in and about life than we might see with our physical eyes. Each religion may have its own rules and ways of  how to reach God’s realm which may or may not fit for the individual. But the bottom line is that we all are brothers and sisters. Each religion teaches about compassion and respect for every being. A true man of God even respects other religious ways and practices because their general goal is the well-being of the soul and not to force others into one particular religion. No, not religion creates terrorists! Men create terrorists! Don’t pre-judge any religion only because there are some who misunderstood the message. Those are found in every religion. Mostly those are – as I said it in my other post – the ones who feel isolated. Instead of finding hold and reconnect with their spirits they use it as a tool of power.

quote-mahatma-gandhi-the-essence-of-all-religions-is-one-41702_2

Over the centuries the name of God was abused to justify the oppression and dictation of races, other cultures, and other religions. It was abused to justify wars. The meaning of religion got lost – the path to God. God is love – only love. Love never kills but supports life. Love never oppresses but puts the other one first. Love never judges but respects and honors the difference everybody brings into this world. May it be Mohammed, Jesus, or others, they all talked about compassion. They never left anyone out. As Jesus said: “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” He did not mean little kids but the children of God that we are. He did not mean to convert them towards Christianity but to simply share God’s love which is all we need to feel the love within ourselves. When we feel the love within ourselves we are at peace with what is. That way we see that we all are one family. We see that we are coming from the same source and that differences are only in the outer appearance. Other than that we all bring something along that is for the benefit of everyone. Together we have all the abilities we need to make this life a complete experience, working hand in hand, sharing the gift of life, help each other to grow through our mutual inspiration, and spreading the nutrition of life – love!

45359fe026d87865f2385651e866f4e0

I am not considering myself as part of any religion (anymore). But that is not because I am against religion. It is because there are “truths” I simply cannot agree with (first and foremost I am talking here about Catholicism). Then again I find so many wonderful teachings and truths in so many religions. That again shows me that all religions are generating from one message and are leading to one goal – Love! I created my own religion from all I feel like a truth from many different religions. All those truths are complementing each other and the picture I create from it is making sense to me. I think what really matters is that we do believe at all in something. That life is more about than only struggling through this physical lifetime. Even if you don’t believe that there is a greater force of unlimited wisdom then at least believe in yourself. That is already enough. Because all you need to know lies within you anyway!

As long as the interpretation of what we believe in is love, nobody cares about religious differences anyway!

You Need To Feel It!

sarah-betty-quote-motivation-the-sky-is-not-the-limit-your-belief-system-is.jpg

Due to some really busy days, I hope you don’t mind that I repost something from August last year. I know that a huge number of my followers don’t know this post yet and perhaps it is a nice reminder for the ones you did read it already. 

Whatever it is you are feeling is a perfect reflection of what you are in the process of becoming – Abraham/Ester Hicks

This sentence was hanging on my kitchen cupboard for the last 6 years. It made me aware of the fact that what I encounter in my live as positive or negative is not something that is sent to me from a higher force but is a reflection of how I encounter life.

img_7596-cropped

Thoughts have a strong impact and influence on the way we look at life. They shape our belief system and control our emotions. Emotions are responsible for our reactions. The more often we think a thought, the more we believe it. May it be through repeated experiences we have built up an opinion, through the words we have heard of others, or even a combination of both.  And one day it is part of that belief system.

The belief system lies even deeper anchored within ourselves. From here we receive our reflexive directions. When familiar situations happen – even if the last time was years ago – the belief system opens up the file and sends the stored message. What lies in the belief system defines our feelings. And here we go.

I recall the quote above: Whatever it is you are feeling is a perfect reflection of what you are in the process of becoming. What we feel is what we believe in. We don’t even think about it anymore. That is our personal truth. And we are living accordingly to this personal truth. This truth again directs our thoughts reflexively. We see the world from that truth, we act from that truth, we talk from that truth, we think from that truth. And we will see the consequences from this all unfolding in our life again. We can tell a lot (not everything) from the way our life is unfolding from what we believed about it in first place.

belief-system-2

Now when we want to become something different from what we see showing up now, we need to change the feelings. The feelings are the powerful wave which connects with the same energy in the outside world. But how to change feelings which are based on an automatic belief system? Just the same way like the belief system was programmed. We simply need to feed that belief system with different thoughts first. We cannot simply delete what we don’t want to think anymore. We must nullify the negative thought pattern with positive thoughts and then make a set up with the thoughts we want to create our feelings (actually, continue thinking the positive thoughts). Sounds more difficult than it is.

It definitely takes a lot of discipline, because the reflex of our belief system is strong. But once aware that it is in our hands what we decide to think makes it easier. We need to shift our thoughts from where they are to where we want them to be. Think from the end. Be what you want to find in your life. What do you want to find in your life? Look out and you will find it. Whenever the old view comes back, pause and look out again for what you actually want. Practice it again and again. It won’t take long – perhaps only days – and you have already reprogrammed a file in your belief system. Do that with every attitude you want to unfold differently in life. You will see within a very short time that something starts to change. You will perceive people differently and they will notice something  is different about you. You radiate differently and that activates different reactions in your surrounding. Change in progress! Now see what happens. You will love it.4

As long as you don’t believe/feel what you think, your thoughts will fade away into the air without any result. Your feeling tells you what you really believe. That’s why the feeling as the strongest creative power has to be aligned with your needs.

That way I changed my life dramatically within half a year. I am very aware of what happens around me. Change means that some things fall apart in order to let new things appear. I don’t resist upcoming challenges and struggles. They always show me that something new is on the way and conditions need to get into a new order to make it happen. Right then, I am even more tempted to remain in a faithful state of mind in order to let my feelings work for happy unfolding.

For some years now I am running up a stairway to heaven. Sometimes I stop to catch my breath and it can happen that I get a little dizzy when I look down. But not for long and my view goes up again to take the next step.

You can make it! And you can start right now!

In Love and Light

It is also an example how quotes are “happening”. In this case, it needs both quotes.  Thank you, Sylvester, for letting me publish your statement!

Today I will share with you a different kind of Song of the Day. It is not one you might know from the charts  or an evergreen. On  the weekend, Colin introduced me to a song which left me with goosebumps! I was so deeply moved by the lyrics and the way the singer performed the song. Immediately I wanted to share it on a Monday with you because it fits the messages I am sharing on that day.

The Challenge of Growth!

shattered-bulb.jpg

Last week I wrote about the seeds we spread constantly through our thoughts, feelings, and actions. I told how they are responsible (consciously or not) for the miracles we are experiencing in life and that most of them are co-created when many put the same or similar conviction into their beliefs and convictions. After I had scheduled that post a friend of mine sent me the quote above. It is again about that little seed that carries a garden of wonders inside. But there is a different message behind.

When the unseen becomes the seen

Romantic Tuesday

The Bench

 

The bench looks empty

But filled with dreams

Not yet experienced

But soon….. it seems

 

Dreams of two people holding hands

Watching the setting sun

With tearful eyes of gratitude

Aware where they belong

 

The bench becomes their meeting place

To talk about their day

Having some coffee and relax

Chilling together all the way

 

Listening to the birds together

Watching nature thrive

Gazing at the stars embraced

In gratitude about their life

 

When then in fall the leaves turn brown

The nights get cold and long

When snow is covering their bench

Their love’s still growing strong

 

Today the bench might still look empty

But filled with burning dreams

It’s written in their book of love

The page about to turn….. it seems!

The Chain of Light

Last week I wrote about love as so much more than only a feeling. I was most inspired by the Charity point and my thoughts went with a particular aspect of that love that connects us and everything in a magical yet natural way. This connection has much more meaning than we might think and we often underestimate the advantage, the obligations, and the responsibility that comes with the decision of being part of this global community.

Love – More Than Just A Feeling!

The first thing when we hear the word Love may be this most fulfilling relationship between two people, feeling butterflies, romance, holding hands, kissing, thinking about creating a life together and perhaps doing it, being there for each other no matter what, one mind, one heart, one soul… To me, this is still the highest level of love we can experience when two people are giving their all for each other. But there is so much more about love.

Kulkan-Pyramide-in-Chichen-Itza-Yucatan-Mexiko-mexico-yucatan-chichen-itza.jpg

When I started writing this post I received the picture of a pyramid. We started at the peak with the “lovebirds” but that is not the base of what love is. There is something very very big far beneath which gives those lovebirds the necessary boost to fly. Let’s go down to the foundation in 5 more steps. For a better understanding: When I describe the love in the different relationships I am talking about the ideal/common way. I try to keep it short in order to not exceed your patience with reading. But I would love to write more about the different subjects if you would like me to. Read more ›

The Fear of Failing

In Love and Light

The Fear to Succeed

So often we don’t start a project because we are afraid of failing. We are afraid of being questioned even before we started or before a result is shown. We are afraid of being criticised about how we do it or even THAT we do it. We are afraid that people are making fun of us because we are doing something they might have never dared to do. Or we are afraid because our project also means showing a part of our inner being, of the real person. But there comes a time when all these fears are not strong enough anymore to keep us from going for our dream. They cannot keep us from stepping out of our comfort zone anymore. We are full of excitement and enthusiasm and yes, we try it with all our heart and passion. And then it happens…. the door opens up!

open-door-sky1 (1)

Here is one example of my life that is one the most remarkable because it was one of the earliest of such experiences.

Many of you know that only 7 – 8 years back I would had never dared to talk in front of people, to share my own thoughts, to stand tall for what I believe in even when no one else believed in it. I would have never dared to say something at all without checking before if there are some who would agree with what I say. Otherwise, I said nothing at all. Then I had my breakthrough 7 years back. I only need to think of that moment and my eyes get watery because I will never forget that feeling of breaking down the walls of my prison.

16812-happy-journey-tips-image.jpg

Here I was, standing in my full light. That light made me see immediately where my path led and I started writing I’m Free – Awareness of Who You Are by Discovering Who You Are Not. I did not know nor did I want to think too far ahead if that book would ever be published but deep inside I knew exactly that this was the journey I was on and the destination I headed towards. When I was done with the manuscript, had given it to others for proofreading, and worked over it again, I felt ready to try something that felt simply impossible to me only 2 years before. I dialed the number of a publisher in order to ask if I may send them some excerpts. They accepted…… and I was full of fear!

fb_import_intg_1372434921_11099.png(Ok, this one is not really in context with the next paragraph
but it was just too funny not to add…😄)

Was I afraid that they wouldn’t like it? No, I was terrified that they would love it! The light definitely illuminated my path. It showed me all the things that are now coming my way and I felt overwhelmed in both positive and fearful ways. Can I handle this all? I could be taken serious! But I was not used to it! I might have to speak about all the things I believe in and what I saw as blessings in life for everyone. But was I ready to do so? I have always dreamed about it but….. HELP…. it works out!!! I felt like losing control over the developments.

fba045ca735810922f6b832e92e82c25.jpg

Thanks to my ego pride (yes, the ego can be very helpful) there was no way back… I had given myself a promise to never ever return to my old prison. And that means that I need to let my light shine in order to see the path… step by step! As you know, they accepted and my blog only exists because of the English version which was published two years after the release of the German book. Meanwhile, I have given several lectures, have written for newspapers and have even given 3 English live radio interviews. I accept right away because I never want to give my brain the time to block the plans of my soul. I feel where I have to go and I will never stop following that inner feeling. Did get used to my light? No, not at all! It feels as if I discovered it every day anew. It is a bit scary…. but much more wonderful to see that the world stands wide open to me!

Sometimes we go for something and don’t really consider it to work out. We do it in order to grant our soul its peace because then we can say that we tried it. Even bigger is the surprise (or the shock) when it works. And it scares a bit more because we feel mentally unprepared. Nothing stays the same anymore. But when things are going smoothly then it is the proof that it is your path and your time- whether your mind is believing it or not.

EmilysQuotes.Com-Motivational-inspirational-strength-positive-Marianne-Williamson.jpg

When we are not used to the bright shine of our light we can be shocked and scared by its immense creative power. The light that we are is pure creative energy. When we let our light shine and only then take action we are on our path and that path will always – all life long – lead to new places. Because we are meant to grow. We are meant to evolve. We are meant to LIVE! It is ok, to be irritated by your light because it is the most amazing power and it is even living within you. But never be scared of it. Trust, that it will always illuminate the path your soul chose way before it came into this body in order to fulfill its plan and give your life the sense and meaning you long for. Your soul is nothing else but a peace of the Almighty.

So when you let your light shine, God shines through you.
That is what the world needs so badly.

There are times when we think what we are doing is not enough or when everything comes together and we think we had to manage it all. NO! We are only one person. We can do our best in each moment but we cannot do more than our best. We cannot prevent us from stressful times but we must never forget that they are temporary.

The Freedom to be Me

A week ago I gave a lecture in Germany with this title. It was such a fulfilling and joyful experience which totally gave me the freedom to be me. Or actually, the decision to speak about what I want to share is the freedom I give myself to be me. That is what I want to do: Sharing the beauty of life and possible ways that others find their own beauty in life. The pre-condition for finding into the life you want to live is to get to feel who you actually are! Read more ›

Either Way!

What makes me think lot these days are the tough tests the kids in the UK have to pass. My soul sister Ritu posted a lot about it lately since she is involved as a mom but also as a teacher. As far as I understood the government changed the guidelines too short noticed and now the students have the toughest time to pass those advanced tests. Teachers are struggling because they need to follow the orders but are heartbroken seeing good and diligent kids being frustrated and completely discouraged. The pressure to fit into a certain picture already starts to shape them in such young years.  Read more ›

So Excited!!!

When have you been excited the last time? Did something turn out the way you wished for? Did you meet lovely people? Did you succeed in something you worked for hard? Did things you were waiting and longing for finally come true? How did it feel? Weren’t you filled with adrenaline? Weren’t you filled with a feeling of immense power? There was happiness, gratitude, contentment in abundance, right? You saw that in the end things are well. You felt what happiness is about, what joy is about, perhaps even what life is about. But most of all you felt so very deep in the most positive way. And yes, that is what life is about.

You Are Stronger Than Your Ego

egosays70040011.jpg

I believe that the ego is not only the bad guy who needs to be fought. I rather think that it is a very helpful part we created over time. On one hand, it can support the path of the soul with its strong will. On the other hand, the ego can help to find out who you are and who you are not. It is a creation of the mind – your mind and your creation. That means that you have the power and can create it in each moment. It is created by thoughts and can, therefore, be controlled by the choice of your thoughts. The further away we are drifting from the true self the more power the ego has. It can show up unexpectedly although we think we already know that guy and its tricks. But in a certain situation, it appears reflexively before we even notice that we are already in its claws again. It is then to step back and see where we would end up if following its direction and what if we chose the direction of the self.  Read more ›

Control is an Illusion!

Life happens while we are making other plans.

I like this quote a lot. We are making plans for our nearer or further future, scheduling our days and then things happen which can change everything in an instant. The weather changes, someone gets sick, the job gets lost, accidents happen, or even more life impacting things.  We have no control about what happens around us. This is something we can be scared of or something that can even give us a relief because we can let go of the pressure to keep everything under control. Read more ›
