G-d has sent us into a world in which most things are out of our control. We can’t control events and we can’t control what people think, do or say.

She has just hit her 40th birthday, and the Evil Inclination is constantly telling her that it's all over, and it's time to pull up the drawbridge and retreat from the world. These beliefs simply aren't true, and they are extremely limiting, but so many people are stuck with this so-called “realistic” view of their world, and what could really happen in their lives.
