It’s Okay, Not To Have Hold of the Reins!

There are so many things that are not within our control.

Remember, this is okay!


“You must learn to let go. Release the stress.

You were never in control anyway.”
Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free


“Freedom is the only worthy goal in life.

It is won by disregarding things that lie beyond our control.”


“Don’t despair: despair suggests you are in total control

and know what is coming.

You don’t – surrender to events with hope.”
Alain de Botton


“We live in a world that is beyond our control,

and life is in a constant flux of change.

So we have a decision to make:

keep trying to control a storm that is not going to go away

or start learning how to live within the rain.”
Glenn Pemberton, Hurting with God


“Always try to be joyful and proactively benign to the people.
By doing so everyday, people have no control at all over my mood.”

Toba Beta, Betelgeuse Incident: Insiden Bait Al-Jauza

“The best way to navigate through life is to give up all of our controls.”
Gerald G. Jampolsky, Love Is Letting Go of Fear


“Control is never achieved when sought after directly;

it is the surprising result of letting go.”
James Arthur Ray


“The world can be such a fright, but it belongs to us tonight.”
Craig Ferguson


And so here we are…. 

All of us together….

Living life as best we can…

One day, one moment, one breath at  a time…


This post is dedicated to my best friend LGB, bgage- who starts

his fight today with his  first round of radiation.

  1. Nice work…. But its feel bad when you think you have an great trust and control over your relation… And on the other fine day you just wake up as you have lost every thing.
    As you wrote in your post just let it go. Release stress… But in real life its complicated…

  2. K,
    It’s a pleasure to meet you and prayers to your friend. I love the title of this post and all the quotes within. Hope you don’t mind if I borrow a few for my collection. This post reminded me of one of my all time favorites quotes. “When you come to the edge of all the light you know, And are about to step off into the darkness, Faith is believing one of two things will happen, There will be something solid to stand on, or you will learn to fly.” Patrick Overton. I’m glad you found my little corner of the world. Welcome to the fence jumpers and thanks for following my blog. @sheilamgood at Cow Pasture Chronicles
