One More Day

A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally…
—  Eleanor Roosevelt

Many of us are will aware of how easily tempers flare or tears can flow when we face an unexpected problem or situation.  Perhaps illness contributes to this sensitivity, but we might also consider whether we’ve become more rigid.  Are we holding too tightly to absolutes, wanting to have almost everything?  Has coping with unpredictable illnesses driven us to seek predictability in other areas of our lives?

Maturity often means letting go of the need to control.  We also find greater peace by allowing ourselves to be unprepared for people and events we can’t prepare for.  There are no absolutes, and we don’t have to live as though there were.

I will be willing to consider new ideas.
