“Stop trying to control the Universe, your spouse, your computer, what people say on social media, how they drive and everything else. We can crush our expression of purpose if we create too many rules around it. If we try to plan, predict, or micro-manage every move or decision, we are stifled. So stop doing this.
Control is constrictive. Limiting. When we get stuck in the frustration that comes with unmet expectations or we begin sabotaging our awesomeness, it keeps us further from the expression of our purpose and makes us feel like eating an entire plate of brownies.
It is our responsibility to do things each day that allow us to embody the full expression of who we are. No matter how external conditions appear, we can still live on purpose. Get comfortable with that idea, and you’ll see plenty of ways to do it. Then you don’t have to worry a bit about how things will happen – you need only be open to all that does happen.”
Polly Campbell, in “How to Live an Awesome Life”
