...about the idea of FAILURE

[Quinta-feira, 21 de maio de 2015]

But controlling the outcome of everything is impossible. It's just as impossible as fixing everything... which is just as impossible as always being able to handle your own weirdness... which is just as impossible as always knowing how to cope with the holy sacred madness of other people... which is just as crazy as the idea that there is one right way to do things — or that we are MEANT to know how to do everything right, or that the word "right" even means anything... which is just as crazy as thinking that you were ever appointed manager of the whole freaking carnivals in the first place.

And sometimes when you think that everything is your job, or everything is your fault, or everything is your problem... sometimes, in fact, you have no job at all, but to LET IT GO. Turn it over. Offer it up. Unclench your hands and surrender, so that you can be free.

(Elizabeth Gilbert)
