It is good to slow down once in a while.
Life is a race. We reach for whatever we wish We endure even our daily tasks. We make sure that we take the extra step, go the extra mile, to strive and achieve what we set out for. And we do get success. We do make our mark. But, in the process, we have lost (invested?) a lot of energy. Energy – which is precious, limited, and needs recharge – depletes with every step we take towards our goals.
We know we are restless. And we must rest less if we must pursue our goals. But, that does not mean we mustn’t take rest. That the pursuit shouldn’t let us suffer our journey towards our goals. The idea, therefore, is to slow down once in a while. Give ourselves the rest we deserve. To treat ourselves with the comfort of moving ahead of our tasks, schedule, and plans. The rest can not only provide us with the much-needed gap, it also supplies us with some extra time so that we can evaluate ourselves.
Restlessness is good. Restlessness is must. But, it must not pave the path for less rests. Take rest. Take pride, enjoy your journey towards your goal.
