“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.”
― Lao Tzu
This has been such a hectic week of catch-up since I returned to the office after my week-long vacation. I’ve felt harried during almost every waking moment, and that certainly doesn’t help my anxiety. This quote (and a few deep breaths) helped to calm me down more than a few times this week. I don’t know what it is about these eight words but they bring me peace that I feel when I am in nature – stillness. I know that I place unrealistic expectations on myself and I just need to trust that everything that needs to be done will be done as soon as possible; there is no point to stressing about it. Easier said than done, but it brings stillness for a few minutes at least.
