Sometimes, ceasing to care is the fastest way into positivity. Instead of forcing it, flagellating myself for negative thoughts, or stressing over every little development, an internal surrender into “it is what it is” or “I’ve been here before and it turned out all right” or even “we’re all going to die anyway” can ease my tension and restore my perspective.

And then I’ll be open and relaxed, cued into subtle opportunities and potential advantages. So it can translate into practicality as well.

  1. I agree with your sentiments, but I try to be a little less negative. Although, going with the saying “let it go” makes me think of that damn Disney movie and song. But so much that is out of our control, can control us if we think it needs to change. No, it doesn’t. If we could control it and change it, we would. But if its not, leave it. The frustration is a drain.
