End of week wrap: Gilla Läget

End of week wrap: Gilla Läget

“…letting things fall apart, letting the world come as it is—working with it rather than struggling against it.”

—Pema Chodron

In Sweden there is this saying called “gilla läget”.

It basically means to go with it, let go of resistance, relax and float downstream.

Translated exactly it says, “like things they way that they are”…now…

People say it when they are in an undesirable situation or perhaps impatient while they are waiting for something they want to have happen…

I personally love this saying – AND I can have such a hard time doing it…

Just letting things be the way they are. I am in the business of defying all odds, shaping your destiny, and designing your life.

I have decided, however, that I can still stand for all those things at the same time as I go ahead and “gilla läget”. Leave things alone the way they are, because how could they be any other way…?

Love always,
