Just. Like. That.
Not immediately, but nearly always “out of the blue”. It seems to “just happen”.
When you’re not sitting at the computer, pleading for the good ideas to come, inspiration strikes.
When you’re not looking for love, you meet your partner.
When you stop obsessing about the extra pounds, your pants start fitting just fine.
This isn’t theoretical. It happens. (I’ve experienced all of it.)
So, of course, this has me taking notice. And as a longtime practitioner of mindfulness, the first thing that pops up for me is this: “when you’re not so attached to the outcome, the outcome has room to show up.”
