Give Yourself Permission to Rest | Seasons of Success

This episode is all about rest. Rest is so vital to our body, mind and soul. Rest is so important and we just don’t talk about it enough. I grew up in household with a father who was an entrepreneur. Because of this, we never really experienced a season of rest. It was always, create and grow, create and grow. This is how I learned to become the entrepreneur I am today. The environment I grew up in taught me to never take a season of rest and therefore I never enjoyed my success. My thought was that if I stopped to enjoy it, I would lose everything. I always felt like there wasn’t enough and I always felt this constant sense of urgency and overwhelm. So here’s how I made the transition. Instead of comparing myself to people who seemed like they were doing more, I started comparing myself to those who seemed calm in their success. Confident in their life and the decisions they’ve made. I wanted to compare myself to people who seemed really present and able to enjoy the success they’ve had. I really want to inspire you to create seasons of harvest, or rest in your life. This begins with you starting your season off in gratitude. To take a season or rest or season of harvest, you can’t just take a moment to reflect in gratitude. You have to take at least a day, preferably closer to a week to rest!
