Life is a Game of Pooh Sticks
Life is just like a game of Pooh Sticks. You find your bridge, carefully select your stick and toss it into the water. After that you have to let go. From now on your stick is not in your control. Many of us fear losing control. We want to be assured an outcome for our efforts but those efforts may or may not be successful. There is a lot of chance and luck involved. Whose stick will come out the other side of the bridge first? Honestly, there is no way to really know. Lucky for us, we have multiple sticks and lots of bridges. Keep on throwing your sticks in the water and learn to accept what come out the other side.
