A challenge from my mom, find her business blog at http://7daysagreek.wordpress.com/:
Even though there is a time and place for expectations and attachments, I have always felt I am happiest when I am able to ‘go with the flow’, ‘live and let live’, etc. Amelia gave me a really great lesson in applying this philosophy recently. One morning when she was still very sick with her eye infection and we were all stressed out not knowing how bad it was, she said to me on the phone, “I came to Poland to have experiences and this is an experience. No matter what happens, I do not regret coming here”. I loved hearing that from her…what a healthy attitude! If reminds me of a quote I have always loved: ‘wear life like a loose jacket’.
Challenge #139, Thursday, May 19, 2011: Look for opportunities to practice letting go of attachments and just letting the experience evolve.
