The choice before us is a simple one; acceptance or control…
Accept with grace what LOVE is and thrive joyously in BEING what we are or continue attempting, futility, insanely to control what LOVE isn’t, surviving in the misery of what we are not, until we are soon, no more.
“But love is much like a dam: if you allow a tiny crack to form through which
only a trickle of water can pass, that trickle will quickly bring down the whole structure, and soon no one will be able to control the force of the current. For when those walls come down, then love takes over, and it no longer matters what is possible or impossible; it doesn’t even matter whether we can keep the loved one at our side. To love is to lose control.” ~ Paulo Coelho, By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept
