I had this moment where I was thinking of what in my life I’ve been gripping tightly without even noticing. And I want to ask you the same thing: Are you holding onto the windshield making sure it’s not going to fly off, when in reality it’s not going anywhere?Often, we grip things we are afraid to lose.We try to control them by focusing our mental energy on them. We worry, we ruminate, and we drain ourselves of useful energythat could’ve been put towards creating a life that feels good.
The reality is what’s meant for us doesn’t need to be gripped.SAY IT LOUDER FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE BACK!
Look, you’re smart. I guarantee it. You know what you want and you’re totally capable. But can I remind you that you didn’t create like, oceans and stuff? That you didn’t create humans and you didn’t give birth to an entire galaxy. Can you trust for five damn minute that the Universe KNOWS what the hell it’s doing? Perhaps you don’t need to tightly grip everything?
