About a month ago I found myself having burnt beyond both ends of the candle that I was burning. I was going and going since about February and despite taking some time off, I was still in total work mode, found myself unable to settle down, and constantly wound up despite having a regular meditation practice.
I took the week of July 4th off and told myself: Absolutely NO work at all!
Yeah, that went real well...
Then, I realized as I finally gave myself permission to rest and relax, that my inner hustler had come in and hijacked the show! She is so sneaky that I didn't even know she was at play. Once I finally settled into resting I was better able to relate with her.
And do you know what she needed?
REST AND PLAY!
