Pause...Stop...Reset

Sometimes you just have to take a break. So I took a mini vacay to Los Angeles ๐ŸŒด to reset my mind. I will say that it was a challenge for me to allow myself this well-needed break. It was challenging because, for as long as I can remember, I've always put an insane amount of pressure on myself to be successful. For me, that meant that I always had to work and if I wasn't working that meant I would miss an opportunity. Another thing, taking a break made me feel like I was losing control because that meant I had to be still. The older I become, the more I'm able to realize that that much control isn't healthy.๐Ÿ˜ญ It stopped me from growing into the person I want to be, and I end up missing out on life. Instead of just living,  I would go through the mental process of wondering if a decision was right or wrong. I began to realize that the only opportunity I would be missing out on was enjoying life, and no one can afford to miss that.

It's important for us to take breaks in between work, so we don't lose our minds or worse lose our way. You never want to be so overwhelmed that you start to question who you are, or your purpose. All great things take time. So don't be afraid to fail. Just because we may fail at something doesn't make us failures. It just means that we're human, and being human that's one of the many ways we learn how to grow. So pace yourself. Don't jump ahead and skip steps to get there faster because you will burn yourself out. Give your mind, body, and soul a break. Reset your energy and atmosphere. If we're focusing on being successful, then we will get in our way. We also can't hear from God when we're focused on the things that only He can control. When we take these breaks and finally let go everything starts to fall into place. So be kind to yourself and take a break. Remember to: Pause, stop, and reset. You will thank yourself later. ๐Ÿ˜
