Day of Rest

sharonsalzbergSharon Salzberg posted this photo on Facebook this morning. Considering how hard I try, how much I push myself, how turned around and tied up in knots I get trying to accomplish ALL THE THINGS, it was a really good reminder for me. Life is one part preparation and one part letting go. I must balance my effort with ease — if I don’t, I will suffer.

    Jill, If you don’t mind I am going to make a copy of the picture and lay it inside my journal to remind me or maybe to ask myself….why do we push so hard? All I receive for the pushing is total exhaustion.
