When you know you’ll be okay regardless of the outcome, you can truly surrender to your own humanness. Sadness, hopefulness, faith, joy, presence, gratitude, love, mourning, awe, smallness, bigness... these are all experiences of being human that we are designed to experience in our lifetime, and often right along side of one another.
Knowing that we will be okay regardless of the outcome does not make us hard or removed, it allows us to release have-to’s or shoulds, which block us from feeling the most meaningful of emotions. In this space we get to be more connected to what’s happening and to being alive, not less.
We don’t need to cling to an outcome that isn’t meant to be. We are strong enough to be okay. We are designed to be fully human.
