Let it go, let it be

Maybe it’s okay when you don’t get your way. Maybe you can live with not having everything you want the moment you want it.

In fact, perhaps that’s a good thing. Perhaps your life would benefit greatly if you could take a step back from yourself and your desires.

Life becomes exhausting when it’s all the time all about you. How sweet it can be to connect with the beauty, the wonder, the mystery of not knowing, the power of detachment.

Your purpose, your goals, your objectives are important. Yet that’s no reason to wind yourself to the breaking point with anxiety.

You’re skilled at evaluating what happens and responding effectively to it, and that’s good. Just keep in mind that you also have the option to let it go, to let it be.

Live your life, live it well, with purpose, with dreams, with achievement. And magnify the value of all you do by being able, and willing, to let it go, to let it be.

— Ralph Marston
