My secret mission.
Sometimes doing nothing is a potent something:)
Last week I went on a secret mission.
The mission’s name:
The mission’s objective?
To give myself an opportunity for the kind of rest that sleep alone cannot provide.
Why was it “secret”?
Because I was that committed to the cause. I wanted ZERO distractions.
Here’s the backstory…
A few weeks ago my husband, who is undoubtedly the best human I know, asked me what I wanted to DO for my birthday.
“Honestly, babe, the idea of DOING anything sounds exhausting. I am pooped and not in a “sleep can fix” this kind of way” was my answer.
“Then you should go away for a few days”, was his response (did I mention what an amazing man he is?).
I briefly wrestled with all the reasons why I shouldn’t go but quickly realized those same reasons were why I MUST go.
My family needs me.
My business needs me.
For cripes sake, I need me!
I did a quick google search of where the sun was going to be shining brightest February 4th-7th, and ended up booking a last minute ticket (which was surprisingly cheap) to Scottsdale, Arizona for 4 days on a quest to do absolutely nothing but REST…deeply.
And rest I did.
The plan was specific: to have no plan.
I walked for hours.
I drank coffee at outdoors cafés.
I talked to strangers.
I marinated in the sun.
I ate lots of great food.
I thought about my future.
Most importantly, I started to come back to life. I started to recognize myself again.
I share this with you because I talk to a LOT of women every week who are also exhausted in a way that sleep cannot fix, especially in the age of Covid.
Maybe you can relate?
If so, I have GREAT news. This theme on the podcast this month is going to be RESTORE because given the past year, I think this topic is more needed than ever. Click here to listen to Episode 226: 3 Steps to Infuse Your Life With More Life.
