A prominent echo last night was something a friend told me once...'Stay in the box & only worry about what you can control.' I chewed on this for a long time because while I am many things, no one would ever accuse me of being an 'in the box' guy. So my friends' statement is a big pill to swallow, especially for people driven by intent, force and passion. But after a while the essence in these words started to sink in for me. It isn't so much about expanding your control in order to worry less (which is a tendency), it's about truly letting go of things you have absolutely no control over. Having said that I figure there's a caveat around new situations and the principle of relativity and the passing of time. Meaning if you've never experienced it, sometimes it takes taking a chance to know how things will play out.
