Today I will practice looking at situations and learning the difference between "taking action" and "letting go." Many times I need to take care of things that seem difficult or overwhelming, and I have to push myself to get them done because I know they are necessary or good for me. This is called taking action.
There are other times when I want things to get done a certain way or in a certain amount of time. These things may not be within my control, and I may feel frustrated that I can’t change them when or how I want to. This is when it’s important to learn the art of letting go, which is usually harder than taking action.
I will practice taking action when I need to and letting go of the things I have no control over.
