When you’re not sure what to do, just let love displace fear. Let truth displace lies. Let go instead of clinging. Trust instead of doubt. Forgive yourself instead of feeling guilty. Accept responsibility instead of being defensive or assigning blame to somebody else. See what you have in common rather than focusing on the differences. Stay present rather than regretting the past or fretting about the future. Choose happiness over self-pity, ego, anger, greed, or control. And play big — choose as though you cannot fail. You can’t, because love can’t.
