The Power of the Pause

Yesterday was one of those days when I unraveled. While it was very tough, and I wouldn’t ever want to repeat it, there is something about the following day that feels empowering and calming.

Having pushed myself to the brink last night by juggling my multiple side projects, it was humbling to wake up this morning with the realization that life is much simpler than I have been making it out to be. There was a sobriety in waking up with a mild headache and a sore throat and telling myself, “Gila, all you have to do today is go to work. Put aside all your other agendas for now; rest a little.”
