The World Won’t Fall Apart if you REST
Sometimes I feel so conflicted. In one moment I’m able to tell myself and others “just relax, take a breath, all the other stuff can wait.”
Then in the next moment I’m realizing all of the things I need to be writing, booking, submitting etc. Things that probably can wait, but there is this constant urgency I have to fight... because really some of it HAS to be done.
My mind is always on and really never shuts down, but when I evaluate my overall goals for my life in family and music and everything else, I think whyyyyy do I do this to myself?!?!?! 😆
I already know I am 100% not willing to sacrifice what it takes to get to certain levels. It’s not even on my radar. I just want to have fun doing what I do. I can’t compare myself and my career to anyone else’s because my life is different and so is theirs.
I love to work and play music, but I also want to be there for the years I have these 3 kids at home...even if that means taking them along on some of these short tours.
That evil little comparison trap is sooooo easy to fall into though.
I mean we all go through it in every aspect of life.
This morning as I found myself struggling with ugh you need to send this email and you need to do that vs the break I promised myself and family this week.
I had to stop and pray the prayer I have prayed as long as I remember “Lord, open the doors that need to open and close the doors that need to close. I rest in that and trust you completely.”
So in this time of making a conscience effort to relax and disconnect a little from the constant grind I just wanted to remind us all again like I have myself 1000 times this week ...the world won’t fall apart if you rest a little 😌😉
