I used to do so much

I used to do so much. I am slowing down now. Not rushing through everything anymore. I have no more to-do list. It's a big relief. But still, something doesn't feel quite right.

This really speaks to me right now and I understand better why I feel the way I do:
“Freedom does not come from a checklist, and a ‘zero inbox’ is not a life aspiration.
If liberation is a chore, it’s not really liberation.
You can’t contract your way to freedom.
You can’t punish your way to joy.
You can’t fight your way to inner peace.
The journey has to feel the way you want the destination to feel.
Let me offer this again, in reverence to your life force:
The journey has to feel the way you want the destination to feel.
And again, with respect to your potential:
The journey has to feel the way you want the destination to feel.”

Thanks for sharing such deep reflexions, Catherine!
I feel you even though I don't realy know you.
Danielle Laporte's words are like screaming to me right now. That'll be something to meditate on.

Merci, Hélène! Ça fait tellement de personnes qui me parlent de toi, je pense qu'on aurait intérêt à se rencontrer, toi et moi. Moi aussi les paroles de Danielle Laporte me parlent énormément!
