Stop trying so hard

When we’re on the quieter end of the spectrum we sometimes feel we have to make up for it by being more clever. Or more witty, beautiful, wise, calm, creative… choose your word.

But when we’re pushing ourselves to try harder and make our mark we’re in danger of disconnecting from who we are. Or what is important to us and where our roots need to be.

No tree ever produced more fruit by trying harder.
