“I will pray to let go of my own rigidity…” — Courage to Change
To me, righteousness, know-it-all-ism, and wanting things to go my way, are all interchangeable ideas. When I’m too rigid in my attitudes and expectations, things tend to break-down in my life. Like a little kid yelling “It’s my way or the highway!“, I push against the world rather than going with the flow. Damaging my relationships with others, I miss out on opportunities, creating unnecessary work and stress. On the other hand, when I let things unfold without trying to control and manage every detail, I’m often pleasantly surprised and life goes a lot smoother. Today I’ll relax, get out of the drivers seat and just LML!
