“I want to feel my life while I’m in it.” – Meryl Streep
In this day and age, feeling stressed and worn out is the norm. The pressure to do and become more is so intense that many of us end up feeling that our entire sense of self-worth and purpose lies around keeping busy. Now there is nothing wrong with leading an active life and accomplishing beautiful and meaningful things. There is nothing wrong with aiming for success! But it becomes a problem when checking off a to-do list becomes more important than checking our happiness level… or even worse: when our to-do list isn’t in line with what we truly desire to be doing with our lives. This video is a beautiful and touching wake up call for women (though I believe it can also applies to men if the wording was changed a little) delivered by women who truly know the importance of stepping back every now and then and appreciating life’s precious moments.
