When you choose to participate in creativity by trusting the process and allowing the flow to do what it will, you are making a crucial step as a creator and as a person. It’s very healthy to accept that you’re not in control of most things. You’re not in control of other family members, of the weather, of that project at work, of the way a community program plays out. You’re not in control, and you were never meant to be. You were meant to be a participant, that’s all.
