In the pursuit of goals and dreams, a certain amount of energy is put forth. However, it’s necessary to distinguish this from the type of effort that results in detriment to oneself.

In the former, much of that movement is inspired and leads to a momentum that reinvigorates. It is self-renewing. In the latter, the doing is obsessive and unyielding. Ultimately, it is unkind to one’s well-being.

As nature shows us time and again, everything cycles. There is a time for pausing and an appropriate time for activity. Beware any type of behavior that abandons love of self and rest is nowhere to be found.

Tweet this: Thriving is rhythmic. Striving is relentless.
