When it comes down to it, we learn to be humble winners and gracious in defeat, but we rarely need to learn how to manage losing control over everything that means anything in our lives. Sometimes learning the hard way is the only option we have.
Knowing that you have handed over something precious to another is hard. Learning that they will not hold with your belief of what should happen next makes the faith you put into them waver.
Clearly, learning to accept what comes when you know it is vehemently not going to be in your favour is terrifying.
When there is no longer anything you can do, when your hands are tied, you learn how to fall.
Let go and accept what comes.
Understand that you cannot change it.
Because even though you fall, you can get up, keep going.
You might just learn how to fly.
