    ”When we try to control our own live, timelines, and circumstances, it creates tension and anxiety in our hearts. Control of these things is simply an illusion. Controlling all the circumstances of our lives is and always will be entirely impossible.” – Emily Wilson, Go Bravely

    Dear Twenty- Something,

    How often do you try to make everything happen on your own? Why do you feel the need to be an island?

    Stop, oh weary one. Let your heart rest. No man is an island, and you do not need to be either.

    Take a deep breath. Let the peace of knowing you are not alone wash over you.

    Let the tears flow. It is okay to be confused, overwhelmed or so overcome with happiness you don’t know what to do other than cry.

    Stop and count your blessings. You have so much to be grateful for.

    Life is beautiful.

    Don’t ever forget that.
