Surrender to win
Ever think maybe it's time to give up? In a positive way, that is.
It's counter-intuitive. Big time. And it's nuanced, as well. As the saying goes—it's like "not giving a crap with a positive attitude."
Giving up only makes sense, though, if you feel there's something that will take over to help you when you do.
From Sting's song "Invisible Sun":
There has to be an invisible sun. It gives its heat to everyone. There has to be an invisible sun. That gives us hope when the whole day's done.
I'm not into wasting my time believing something that's not true. But I am thoroughly convinced that something knows better than I do about the best way for me to live.
The few times I do manage to give up and go with that something I have been led. And into places far better than I was headed on my own.
It's a challenge. It's hard giving up control. But it's worth it—and it's such a relief.
