I had a session this morning with my spiritual director. Since yesterday, some of the fear and anxiety has lessened and I'm feeling better able to be comfortable in my body and in my life. We went back to our usual routine of a few minutes of meditation and then a reading, which often helps spark our conversation. Today's reading seemed so appropriate that I wanted to share it with you.

You cannot control the outcome
of your experience—
You can only control yourself
and the way you engage in the process

The quality of your life
depends on how you respond
to whatever life presents you

You can greet life's uncertainties
with patience and trust,
or you can greet them
with resistance and fear

The choice is completely yours

Mountain's Stillness River's Wisdom by Philip M. Berk
