Years ago i had this rip away day calendar Mom gave me for Christmas that has quotes on every day. needless to say it was perfect for me, still is (Christmas list this year?). And for some reason i kept this on quote in my wallet all these years later. I read it often. I don't know who said it or even if its a quote really. I just know it helps me forward.
"Becoming less attached to outcomes doesn't mean that you don't care or that you didn't try. Instead, its more a matter of trying really hard, caring a great deal, putting the odds in your favor-but then letting go of the result and allowing things to unfold as they will (which is what will happen anyway)."
