We are told to work harder, work longer, to hustle more. Told it is our fault when things don’t work out, when we are looked over, when we are not picked.
Being still, quiet, and reflective connects us with ourselves and the moment in which we are. In a world of always on, of instantaneous response, pausing and resting are revolutionary acts.
Perhaps the ancients were on to something. And perhaps, a bit more reflection helps us to be more connected, thoughtful, and kind.
