Letting go of your need to control can help you forge bonds of companionship making you feel wonderfully secure. Though it’s easy to assume the best defense against uncertainty is to be in power, working in tandem with others—rather than exerting authority over them—can give you the security of knowing that they’re on your side.
Instead of becoming your competitors or challengers, they become team members that can lend you strength when you need it, offer you guidance when necessary, & lift your spirits. Letting go of the need to be in control & working side by side with others will give you the support and feeling of security you need to achieve your goals.
The same holds true in design. Don’t be afraid to “let go” and be fluid in your pairings. What made us happy as children can still put a smile on our lips. Mixing old with new, fun with serious and bright with dull can open a whole other world of possibilities you may not ever have imagined possible. It is in learning to let go where the marriage of opposites comes alive and dazzles. Have fun!
