Tao Te Ching day 96: Expect the Unexpectacular ๐Ÿ˜.

โ€œThey succeed but do not dwell on success.โ€

TTC 2 (Lin)

Realizing success is a subjective result it does no good to dwell in it, just as it makes no sense to dwell in failure.

Each of these things could be the opposite to another individual so it is best to experience it and then let go.

I see a rumination on being successful in my own life as an invitation for unnecessary expectations. Expectations that would assume I must succeed at everything I do or that I will no longer try unless my expectations of success are a sure thing.

The hole which we can fall down is great when we hold on to any idea of ourselves or our outcomes.

I am a writer, a storyteller, a yarn-spinning freakazoid. My life is full of two things today, lessons and blessings. I write fiction mostly but I also love to write about my life and the things I go through on a daily basis. Writing it out inspires and motivates me and that's why I do it. Plus if it does that for me maybe it will for someone else too.
