This really speaks to me Jonas! Sometimes there is such a fine sliver of a line between giving up and surrendering. More than once in my lifetime I have had the experience of finally “giving up” a seemingly unattainable goal after working really hard to bring it about — usually over time. Sometimes I have given up in a mixed state…there might be a sense of defeat or even sorrow, but there is also an acknowledgment that to keep striving would be too hard on me. And there’s a knowing that I need to let go and accept the situation.
And then the miracle occurs.
Just after I decide I can live without the dream — that hanging on to the dream so hard is beginning to hurt me — the dream comes true. And then there is just the most ecstatic feeling.
I love that.
