“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don’t find myself saying, ‘Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner.’ I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.”
~Carl R. Rogers

This is an interesting perspective about control and about letting go. It is also an analogy that I can relate to as I adore sunsets and spend a lot of time watching them and taking photos. I love the colours and how they change. If you relate that back to people it reminds me that I need to focus through my 90% and just see people for how they are — the good, the bad and the ugly (it’s a saying people – I’m not pointing fingers). I can’t control other people only myself so that’s where I need to let go and enjoy the “colours” that people show.
