All You Need To Do Is Be

“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
When I let go of what I have, I receive what I need.”

~ Tao Te Ching

This morning I woke to the sound of giggling. My husband’s daughter and her friend were playing with our new dog downstairs. The cats were sunning themselves, my husband was reading on the couch, and music was playing in the background. Another happy moment.

I have to laugh at myself. I’ve been working so hard at letting go, I’ve been striving to be easy breezy. Hilarious.

Thing is, everything unfolds naturally on its own. I don’t need to try, I don’t need to strive.

I just need to be.
