Recently, I was hanging out with a few friends who are considerably younger than I, who haven’t fully ingested the fact that life doesn’t always go according to plan. In fact, life rarely mirrors our imaginings, which does not mean that we shouldn’t dream, plan and go after what we want. Nor does it mean that life isn’t absolutely fabulous.
It simply means that life is more a roller coaster ride than a smooth sailing happening. Life is a circular, not linear; and while you may have some amount of influence over the outcome, it is far from entirely under your control.
Therefore, if you want to be happy, you’ve really got to ‘let go’ and simply ‘be present’ and accepting of what is!
Here, from Janice Taylor, your Anti-Gravity Coach (that’s me), offers up…
