The Wild Card
Much of our psychological stress comes
from worrying about the unknown. Occasionally, it is important to give
yourself permission to allow room for the wild card, the unknown, the
chance that good things might happen for no reason at all, that things
will work out. This would mean that you don’t have to be the general
manager of the universe. You don’t have to fix everything. It is easy to
imagine all the negative things that can happen, but remember, things
could also turn out just fine. Give equal time to imagining that, too.
Every now and then, it’s OK to just rest and give some situations time
to untangle themselves.
