My Hands are Held up High

There’s something powerful in surrender. You can spend your whole lige chasing an ideal and never reach it. When you surrender, you become the ideal. I have learned a valuable skill in the past few years, the practice of relaxation. When life throws lemons at me, I’ve learned to surrender. In a very advanced state, I can even make lemonade of these challenges.

I am a problem solver, especially in my classroom. But in the quiet place of my own heart, I think its time to leave some things unsolved. What will happen I wonder. Well, the world won’t stop turning just cause one dude is trying to let go more. This is my latest life experiment, we’ll see how it goes.
