I agree with both. The first I had to re-read to absorb it, but after I did, I realize I do allow randomness in my life, more and more as time goes on, because I am finding peace in "allowing." I am allowing myself to be led by my higher spirit. There is great joy in that, and comfort in that I know I am guided in my randomness. I am growing so much since I have let go of many expectations for what I can and can't do, and I am letting myself expand beyond what I thought could be possible.
As for the second ... I am cautious about decisions regarding who I will allow into my inner circle. What trips me up is having allowed a person in and then having something go wrong. Perhaps they have hidden a trait, perhaps I overlooked it, or we grow apart in some way, and the parting is, well, ungraceful. Balancing between caution and my natural habit of accepting people where they are, as they present themselves, can be tricky. I think I'm doing better, although the last couple years have been a challenge. I've let my guard down a few times, haven't minded my boundaries, and I've been pushed. The work problems have been mostly because I trusted others to be professional and ethical without giving it much thought. I should know that people aren't always honest about things when it comes to "getting ahead." In my personal life, I accept people as they present, but don't allow them close until I am sure who they are. A few mistakes here and there, but overall, a good balance, I think.
