What did I learn?
At first glance, we think that nothing is in our control. Well, it isn't EXCEPT, how you react to situations and how you let the result of things AFFECT you, IS in your control. The key is to remain open, accept what is, visualize and believe you have what you want, then let it go and let the Universe do the rest. I know this sounds so esoteric and like a lot of mumbo jumbo, but it does work. If you let it and if you believe it.
Have a wonderful holiday season and a magical new year!
