For me, I am learning how to trust. Sometimes being so far away from everything I’ve ever known, I feel stranded. What I find interesting, is that with this feeling I am not scared, I am calm. There is an underlying sense that everything is going to be ‘ok’, because it has to be. With the distance between me and familiarity, I understand that I cannot control things. As much as I’d like to mold everything that happens in my life, I can’t. All I can do is hope that some force greater than myself will sculpt something beautiful for me, my life, and everyone I care about.
My advice: Don’t try to control anything, nothing can be controlled. We do not have that power. Life is different, when we stop controlling.
