Abandon attachment to results and expectations to attain peace or be bound to it.
It is truly difficult to on the one hand have goals and on the other, not expect certain outcomes. For me what works best is to keep working towards a dream but allow it to unfold in its own way and time. I do the footwork and then just see what happens.
There is enough in life that requires my instant and undivided attention and action to resolve like the flood we had inside our home and the subsequent fall out of things to do.
