I read this in a newsletter I get and it struck a chord. It is one of those things that show up and you know that one day the message will be needed. I hope it resonates for some of you, too.
“If you find yourself in a challenging situation, one that pushes you beyond your comfort zone. One that stimulates frustration, disillusionment and even despair . . . Take action. Do what you can do. Make the best effort you can make. But don’t be attached to the outcome.
In many cases the outcome is beyond your control. So you need to let go of the outcome. It’s out of your hands.
Turn the outcome over to God, or Buddha, or Allah, or a Higher Power, or Fate.
Your empowerment comes from taking action in the face of despair.
Your integrity comes from doing the best you can do.
And your wisdom comes from knowing what you can and can’t control (serenity prayer).” By Gregg Krech, the ToDo Institute
