We could strain for hours today for the meaning of something that may come in an instant next year.
Let it go. We can let go of our need to figure things out, to feel in control.
Now is the time to be. To feel. To go through it. To allow things to happen. To learn. To let whatever is being worked out in us take its course.
In hindsight, we will know. It will become clear. For today, being is enough. We have been told that all things shall work out for good in our life. We can trust that to happen, even if we cannot see the place today's events will hold in the larger picture.
Today, I will let things happen without trying to figure everything out. If clarity is not available to me today, I will trust it to come later, in retrospect. I will put simple trust in the truth that all is well, events are unfolding as the should, and all will work out for good in my life - better than I can imagine.
- from The Language of Letting Go by Melody Beattie

I love Dr. Rankin's scientifically validated wellness model The Whole Health Cairn!
Dr. Rankin posits that "the health of your relationships, your professional life, your spiritual life, your creative life, your sex life, your environment, your finances - in essence, the health of your mind - impacts your health far more than your diet, exercise, smoking, drinking, sleep habits, or how many vitamins you take" - www.LissaRankin.com
