Surrendering is the challenge of the human condition. Oh, how we want to fight and control the process of life! Or maybe that’s just me. We fight aging by trying to look young. We deny the dead by trying to make them look alive. In between, we try to force outcomes and make people do what we want them to do. It’s exhausting.

Each day we have to renew our commitment to surrendering in an effort to move through life with more peace and ease. Good things usually follow.

A great way to overcome the fear of surrendering is to decide to just go with it. Whatever “it” is on any given day. That way, the weight of the word “surrender” is removed, and the levity of this act can be experienced.

Now, just go with it.
