Those of you who read here know that this idea of letting go of control has been a recent recurring theme for me.
So my interest was peaked when I came across "7 Mantras for Letting Go of How Life “Should” Be" [read it here] from Mark and Angel Hack Life. Here is a sampling of their mantras:
- You must accept the fact that things may never go back to how they used to be.
- If you want to be effective and bright, let go of your need to always be right.
- When you hear only what you want to hear, you’re not really listening.
They end the list of seven item advising each of us to be humble and teachable.
I suggest that you read their post in full here. Especially if you need to let go of how life should be.
