To be in control of everything in your life constantly, is an illusion; So is to visualize everything in your life is out of control. What we need is balance.
There are times when it is possible to have some degree of control over large areas of life but there are also times when letting go is a wise thing to do.
This is important, especially in times of extreme shock coming from some life altering event. In those times we need to let go without feeling guilty while realizing that after an appropriate length in time we will regain the control back.
Knowing this important principle can save you from lot of grief.
Think about it!
