We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.

Natural sunset when returning to barn after a ride, Findlay, Ohio.

‘Let it go…let it go…’ The song from Frozen keeps running through my head as I am writing this.

I am a planner by nature. I often fall asleep at night planning the next day, filling my mornings, afternoons and evenings before the day has even begun.

Planning is good. But maybe too much planning makes me think I can control things. I can’t plan a beautiful sunset…but hopefully I haven’t overbooked myself so much that I can’t stop to enjoy it.

When I try to control too many things, I add stress to my life and to those around me and I also, quite possibly, shut the door on other things that could be waiting for me.
