“May my heart be brave, my mind fierce, and my spirit free.”
Are you a free spirit?
I can’t say I’m really a free spirit. I’m much more of a planner. I like to have an idea of where I’m going and what I’m doing. But in recent years I’ve discovered that life simply can’t be planned.
I’ve started to let it go. I don’t plan every hour of every vacation. I don’t freak out if unexpected events pop up in my life. I certainly didn’t realize I’d marry the guy I would marry, live in the countries I’ve lived in, and have my priorities redefined by a tiny, little person. Yet here I am, in a different place that I’ve imagined and happy in a different way. People change unexpectedly. Lives leave us as new lives are created. Money is gained and money is lost. We can’t control everything, but we can control our reactions. We can also let go and at least let our spirits be free once in a while.
Have a lovely week!
