Your plans and goals aren’t owed because you want them. They are intentions.
You don’t make demands of the sea when you sail. You intend to sail and adjust as you go, depending on what the sea wants.
The sea isn’t working for or against you, it’s being the sea.
It’s your understanding of that, your allowing of that, that creates the conditions for you to succeed.
Working in cooperation with the breakthroughs and the breakdowns. From crest to trough.
You don’t force; you flow.
Instead of anxious, you’re curious.
You don’t feel stuck, you feel progress.
Learning to hold your expectations more lightly makes you less invested in them should they not work out.
This is an important step in keeping feelings of frustration and rejection at bay.
