Queen of Your Own Life

Don’t White Knuckle Life

Her knuckles were white from always hanging on a little too hard. She decided it was time to let go and just live. - Queenisms™ Her knuckles were white from always hanging on a little too hard. She decided it was time to let go and just live. – Queenisms™

If we could go back and tell our younger selves anything, it would be to let go more quickly. We’d want to tell “her” that hanging on, with white knuckles and a death grip just might not be the best way to go through life. We’d reassure our younger selves that we can’t truly “make” anything happen. We can create a space where good, loving and wonderful relationships can flourish. We can work to create a space where children can grow to reach their full potentials. We can keep a positive attitude and work hard on ourselves but we can’t make other people do what we want them to do. The only thing we have control over is ourselves and our reactions to things. And, sometimes, the kindest, bravest, gentlest thing we can do is let go and live. White knuckle living is not really living at all.
