While I am learning to accept uncertainty, I am still a long ways from loving it. Some days, I am full of questions and ideas on how I can force things to work out, which just leaves me feeling stressed and anxious. Other days, I get so burned out on worrying that I just let all of that go, and surprisingly, that’s when everything begins to flow again. There are no guarantees for any of us in life: at any moment, whatever we’re grasping could crumble and slip through our fingers. Indeed, the harder we hold on, the more likely we are to break whatever we’re clutching. This is why relaxing and taking it easy actually protects whatever is most important to us; to nurture our desires, we must carry them lightly and gently.
