Not Ours Alone

Our plans are not ours alone to make. 

We have some say over how our lives progress, but our power over life is finite and our vision is as well. 

We cannot see every reason, every cause, every effect, and every purpose. 

We cannot control ever detail, variable, or circumstance. 

All we can do is our best. 

Often, it will not feel as if even that is good enough. 

Often, it will not be good enough. 

Things will not go as we had hoped. 

Our plans will fall apart. 

We will feel confused, lost, and frightened. 

We will begin to question everything.

Our lives will feel beyond our control. 

That is because our lives are not ours alone to control.
