The Sweetness of doing Nothing


Ah, the sweetness of doing nothing is one of my favorite quotes from the feature film, Eat, Pray, Love. This film is beautiful and full of self revelations and the one quote that stands out, the title of this article helps capture and give light to slowing down in life. I'm not saying give up on everything. It's more towards valuing the important things in life and to stop and smell the roses. Take a breath and take a look at your surroundings and embrace the environment around you. Maybe notice things around you that have never crossed your mind before. 

I want to discuss the sweetness of doing nothing and how I have found myself with each passing day and offer a reflection of my life. As I continue to grow and learn as a an adult in the world. I have found myself working 6 day work weeks. I was pressed for time and always trying to chase the bag. I have to say, the money was nice, but at what cost? My mental and emotional state were put on the back burner and I found it hard to go and do things I enjoy like going to a museum, going to park with friends and read books together. Instead I was always busy with work, had no time for friends and compromised my mental health for money.
