#atinylife Fall by Josie Hervey

Letting Go.

Control freak sister here. Actually, that’s not entirely accurate. Anyone who knows us will tell you that we’re all control freaks.

I like to think of myself as pro-active, a fixer, and it’s true: I am. But recently I’ve been learning that this sense of control is actually an illusion, the product of a lucky, privileged life.

FallSooner or later, something will come along that you can’t control, manage or – my own personal favourite – fix.

Then what?

Well, I’m coming to realise that sometimes – without giving up, or even in – you just have to let go.

And yes, I know: if you let go you might fly… blah, blah, blah… you might fall, too.

Some things about letting go:

You might fall, but that doesn’t mean you failed.

You might fail, but so what? Let that go too.
