Loosen up

It’s good to have a specific objective, and to follow that objective. Yet it can also be good to absorb life in all its richness with no particular goal in mind.

Sometimes, not always, a waste of time is a great use of time. Sometimes, when you’re not sure what you’re doing, you can do some very creative things.

With focused effort you can achieve great things. With play and relaxation you can experience great insights.

What you strive for can elude you as long as you continue striving. Loosen up a little, give life’s goodness and abundance time to sink in.

Living with purpose is serious business, but you don’t have to get all somber and stressed about it. Put more joy and playfulness in your days, in your efforts, in your heart.

You can be purposeful, determined, focused, while also being cheerful, relaxed and open to new experiences. Loosen up, refuse to take yourself too seriously, and add richness and effectiveness to all you do.

— Ralph Marston
