i think at some point in your life, you realise that you have to stop wanting things so much. you have to realize that you put your best efforts into that test, or that relationship, or that job or whatever it is, and then you let go. discard all expectations and truly let go. forget it. let the good things come to you when they may. give them a chance to arrive. be patient. have faith in the universe that if thing were to work out then they will. there are always beautiful cosmic lessons to be unfurled.
-inspired by ajahn brahm’s talk on patience.
