"Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves without any insistence that they satisfy you." - Dr. Wayne Dyer
I am a fan of Wayne Dyer. I am reading one of his books right now. This quote speaks to me. Some days I feel at odds with my kids and myself because I forget to just let things be the way they are supposed to be instead of how I imagine they should be. Our days go a lot more smoothly when I start the day remembering this quote. And just because I love him so much, here is another inspiring quote from the good Dr.:
"I cannot always control what goes on outside. But I can always control what goes on inside." I may not be able to control my emotions, but I can let them be what they are and try to understand why they are happening without letting them control my behavior.
