Acceptance...

I am waiting for a chain of decisions to come together over the next 3 - 5 days which, assuming they all happen as I hope and expect them to, will bring me a great deal of joy.

But my influence over any of those decisions is zero, zip, zilch, nada, rien, niente, and any other similar word you can think of.

In the past my stress level would have been 100%, but right now it’s only about 70%, because learning, accepting and then practicing the idea that worrying about things outside my control is a waste of time, has made a small but noticeable difference to my life.

For the stress to go away completely, I’d have to stop caring, but learning to accept that there are things that we simply cannot change goes a long way to making the wait a little easier…
