Are you over-steering your life?

Mythologist, Joseph Campbell wrote: “We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.” All too often we tend to “over-steer” our lives, worrying, anticipating, micro-managing, trying desperately to control what’s ahead. If you really want to find solace, happiness, and psychological well-being, try loosening your grip on life’s steering wheel and let things unfold, naturally, spontaneously. As the AA adage goes, “Let go, let god.” Pretty good Self Coaching advice.
