Do you know the story of the bird who let go? By letting go, he became free of the net in which he was trapped into.
What about the story of the mouse? Instead of letting herself drown into a jar of cream she fell into, she did her best. She moved around so much that the cream turned into butter. So she could escape safely.
These two stories seem the exact opposite. However we need both.
May we work hard towards our dreams, while making space for rest and restorative selfcare.
