What if you didn’t have to work so hard to make them love you?

A rhythm of life that’s actually sustainable

Humans love to create emergencies for themselves. It’s what helps make us feel big and important and dramatic.

But in a world where most people are trapped in the frantic scramble for position, prestige, profit and power, frankly, there’s nothing more soothing than encountering someone whose inner calm you can literally feel.

Everyone has someone like this in their lives. People who have settled down and found a measure of peace. People who know how to flip the calmness switch. People who have realized that humility is being at rest. People who honor their body’s unique need for balance and move at a pace that neither rushes them nor proceeds too slowly.

These are my heroes. Not athletes or rockstars or startup founders or internet celebrities, but exquisitely ordinary people who have exceptional letting go abilities.

That’s what it all comes back to. Because every little act of acceptance allows people to relax a little bit more. If someone is more calm than you, it’s because they have let go more than you.

Remember, the meaning of meaning is to set the pace of being. If we don’t choose to push back against our hectic tempo and move toward simplicity and harmony, eventually, life is going to pull the rug out from under us.

May each of us learn to live within a rhythm of life that’s actually sustainable.

What if you didn’t have to work so hard to make them love you?
