Thought for the day: Become an “I don’t know it all.”
Whenever you find yourself getting anxious about the big and small deaths of daily life—being out of control, not getting what you want, endings and partings—take a few minutes to allow in the possibility that you do not see the full picture. Often what looks terrible today will, in retrospect, have been a blessing. Just allow that possibility in. You do not have to understand or figure everything out. You can relax into the mystery of not knowing.
