Trust life more than your ideas.

A friend recently dropped this nugget of poetic wisdom: “I’ve learned to trust life more than my ideas.”

I love this.

Everyone has an agenda. Everyone has a story. Everyone has an idea for how this life should unfold.

And never in history has the story of the mind perfectly played out.

Life often has a different agenda for us.

Sometimes we can guide it, and other times we need to let it guide us.

Listen to where it’s trying to take you.
