Sociologists call it “benign neglect.” What it is, is patience. If only I can keep myself from rushing about to do something, things generally turn out fine. I first do what I can, then let go. ~ Overeaters Anonymous. For Today (Kindle Locations 3116-3117).
Benign Neglect: a noninterference
intended to benefit someone or something
more than continual attention would.
That’s not substantially different
from the Serenity Prayer, is it?
And surrender to a Higher Power,
“Not my will but Thine be done!”
