Detach yourself

Detach yourself from the negative things and those things lose their power over you. Detach yourself from the good things and you’ll enable yourself to enjoy them more.

Reality is what it is, and you cannot change what already is. What you can do, though, is to stop being burdened by your own need.

Make every day an adventure rather than a chore. Embrace what comes your way instead of being fearful of it or dependent on it.

Detachment does not mean avoiding commitment. It means avoiding unnecessary entanglement, and acting as the unique and purposeful force that you are.

You can be highly committed to people, objectives, and ideals while at the same time being detached from them. Doing so enables you to act with the power of love rather than the weakness of need.

Detach yourself, and free yourself to embrace life with love, with purpose, with intention. Detach yourself, and you can then involve yourself in the most positive, authentic way possible.
