"Don't Sweat the Small Stuff" by Richard Carlson

Be Open to "What Is"

"One of the most basic spiritual principles in many philosophies is the idea of opening your heart to "what is" instead of insisting that life be a certain way. This idea is so important because much of our internal struggle stems from our desire to control life, to insist that it be different than it actually is. But life isn't always (or even rarely is) the way we would like it to be -- it is simply the way it is. The greater our surrender to the truth of the moment, the greater will be our peace of mind".
