20140717-224211.jpgI ran into someone at work who was visibly upset. She was dealing with a lot of changes in her life and she was feeling like she had lost control of some things in it.

When she said, “I just don’t feel any control about this…,” was when a lightbulb lit up over my head, and I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. I was being given an opportunity to learn more about what I was trying to learn myself.

“Oh…” I said and smiled. “I can’t believe I am about to say this…”

“Sometimes, you just don’t. That’s when you have to let go, and trust. Trust in the natural unfolding of things.”

We spoke some more, and I plan on checking in on her more as she deals with the changes in her life. I told her we can work on our letting go of control together, so that she doesn’t feel alone.

Sometimes you get an opportunity to teach something you are learning, so you can learn it better.
