Don’t try too hard

Don’t try too hard.

Trying too hard to achieve an outcome sometimes gets in the way of things.

Like life.

Like grace.

Trying to be the best puts you at exclusion of everyone else.

You lose.

You no longer connect with people because you’re trying to beat them.

We race each other to the grave.

Winning is ultimately about losing.

Losing our connection, our love, our story, our humanity.

When we don’t try to win, we can then try to understand and listen to each other.

We become whole and connected.

We learn.

We grow.

Our hearts become bigger and more open.

And we all win.
