Lately I've noticed the more I let go, the better things seem to get. We're not talking about not caring or being passive. Focusing on excellence, be it something as simple as respecting yourself and others around to how you walk (Do you walk with a sense of hubris?).
Developing a habit of caring for Humanity (Unattached to the outcome). However also letting go of people (without malice or a sense of frustration) who don't return your respect, either they might not be able, don't know how to, or don't want to.
Let go and let Peace come to you.
