“Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.”Tweet It!
― Lin Yutang
I needed this reminder today. A reminder that just because I had planned on doing something, and am able to do something, doesn't mean it needs to be done.
A reminder that there is beauty in emptiness, and that silence can be serene.
A reminder that even though it can be hard to say “no” to something that is already on our plates, sometimes we need to in order to say “yes” to something that matters more.
A reminder that it is up to us to decide what needs to be done — if anything at all.
P.S. Our members say that small reminders like this are one of the things they love most about the Holstee Membership. We created the membership to serve as a consistent reminder to live fully and mindfully — to be proud of the lives we lead and the choices we make.
