S5E2 - Giving Ourselves Permission to Pause

June 30, 2016

I just returned from a couple days in California where I took a creative deep dive into the development of some upcoming projects and also built in some rejuvenating time in nature (lots of hikes, and even camping, in the redwoods).

This was the exact pause I needed. 

Giving ourselves permission to pause seems so obvious, like something we would just naturally do, yet all too often we push ourselves to a point of complete overwhelm or exhaustion. For much of my life, this is what I would do. I would push, push, push with my work, with my social time, and in many other areas of my life. And despite feeling like I needed a break, I would push through and then my creative flow would stop and my passion for my work with get lost. 

I see this happen with so many women, and this feeling of overwhelm and exhaustion is one that I've been hearing from so many of my friends recently. They are in desperate need of a pause, yet they are caught in one of many loops of shaming, punishing, or judging what they are feeling and in turn withholding the only path to re-activating their creative flow and passion for life and work. 

Tune in and give yourself permission to pause and rejuvenate. 
much love,
