Life in this universe includes problems. You aren't going to change that, so to curse the universe is to waste a curse. (I think all curses are a waste.) That life has problems is okay because problems aren't just difficulties, they are opportunities to grow. Even though I say that, I try often to control storms, make them go how I want them to go. I believe in letting storms go over me, but I'm not very good at that. I tend to bend reluctantly. I think I surrender more than bend. I don't think some things must go wrong; I think we see things that way when things don't go as we think they should. What helps me be at peace is knowing that, knowing that things happen and change is constant, and knowing that things don't really go wrong, they just don't go as we'd like. That something is going wrong is a judgment call. I am getting better at going with the flow, not trying to control or predict.
