“Let it go. That’s how it’s going to happen anyway.”

That’s what my yoga instructor said this morning during class. That’s what I really needed to hear.

She was talking about relaxing into the position we were holding. That was no big deal for me. I was thinking about how I’m starting to get obsessed again about taking the next step with Way Out. I’m waiting to hear from a few agents. I’m eager to start editing and writing again. I’m excited to move forward. I want to NOW!

But the reality is, as always, that I need to let it go. That it probably will happen, but nothing I can do can really make it happen sooner. Especially when I’m waiting on others.

I’ve found this to be true time and time again. I know I need to let go. I know that when I do let go, invariably something happens. It might be exactly what I want. It might not. But somehow in my letting go, movement always arises. I know this. I know it fully. And still I find it hard to do.

I am an action-oriented person. I like to take control and push things along. I like to pull up the tulips I’ve planted to see how they’re doing, or at least do everything I can to help them grow quicker. And better.

But I can’t. Tulips will grow as they grow. Way Out will progress as it progresses.

I need to let it go – to stop checking my email somewhat compulsively, to stop letting it dictate my mood and my day. And I am.

That’s how it’s going to happen anyway.

I’d love to hear your thoughts, and please share this post with others if it resonates with you!
