I often care deeply about trying to accomplish something I really desire and then devote 100% of my energy trying to do everything I can muster to make it happen, often way past the point others would have thrown in the towel.
And, oddly, at the same time I emotionally divorce myself 100% from the ultimate outcome of my efforts. I surrender fully and don’t care about how it all sorts itself out.
For me, caring means feeling good about myself doing everything within my power.
Not caring about outcomes means graciously accepting the results which are not within my power.
WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS ODD BALANCE?
