i read last week that the antidote to exhaustion is not rest.
it is wholeheartedness.
i've been sitting on that thought for a week now
and i believe it may be true.
(for me at least.)
the definition of whole.hearted.ness is this:
"complete and sincerely devouted, determined and enthusiastic"
it's no secret that i am happiest when i am busy. have a sense of purpose.
am creating or have various projects on the go.
these past 3 months have passed slowly and have been heavy.
there is a need for spring in my life, in my family
and in my day to day
i am sitting on a project that excites me.
it also excites Hannah and has the potential to give us meaningful work to do together.
it still allows me to be home, to rest when i need to,
to be outdoors and to do something that is dear to me
i feel excited and that excitement leads to more energy.
i feel productive and that leads to more self worth.
i feel alive and that leads to health.
i am wholeheartedly embracing what is being given to me.
