Respite Reflections’ purpose is to help people push the “pause” button in their transition work — to take a break from the thinking, researching, networking and preparing for interviews. Taking a moment to center yourself, ponder a positive thought, and focus on a broader perspective is invaluable during a time of transition.
“Put your heart, mind, intellect, and soul
even to your smallest acts.
This is the secret of success.”
– Sivananda Saraswati
In many significant ways, there truly are no big important acts versus small unworthy acts. Everything we do is an action affecting someone, even if it is only our own selves. If we want to feel successful and recognized for our accomplishments, perhaps we need to recognize that we each determine how fulfilled or empty we feel about what we do. Perhaps that feeling of accomplishment we so desire comes more from the care we put into our actions than the result itself.
