Why are we always trying to figure everything out? What is it with our interest in solving life’s puzzle? Why must we investigate and guess as to what we think is going to happen? Why do we have such a hard time just letting sh*t be? I often wonder about this actually because I too used to like to figure everything out – especially in my own life.

And guess what…we’re surrounded by support and when we make it out of the maze we’re going to look back at it all, laugh and think, “That wasn’t so bad, was it!” Today’s Daily Affirmation is:
