Feeling Philosophical

As promised, another favorite quote of the week:

We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.

–E.M. Forster

To say that this year has turned out differently than I’d planned for would be a giant understatement. But when I’m feeling frustrated by that, I look at this quote and remember that everything happens for a reason. Right?

  1. I have that same quote written down in my journal, because I love it, and it’s helped me through the last few years. But I know it as a Joseph Campbell quote that I dug out of his Hero with 1000 Faces. Maybe those great minds think alike!
