Earlier this week my husband was gone for 4 days and my son was at the in laws for the night and I had the house to myself. I could have chosen to sit down and hustle on my home business but not that day. I was tired. My mind needed a break, the hustle is meaningless if the heart isn’t being charged to guide the hustle with PURPOSE.
So I unplugged and hung out with this fellow doctor wife who began as an acquaintance and has turned into a blessing from Jesus. Talking and walking with her today gave me room to process so many things God has been trying to tell me the last 2 weeks but I was too busy to stop and listen. Needless to say, this is a friendship that protects my relationship with Jesus and my peace, and that’s why I’m grateful for you Erin! Thanks for being a light in my life and an amazing listener.
I am not a machine. I am not invincible. I am not super mom. I can not do it all nor do I need to. I am 100% confident in the calling God has put over my life so to protect it and protect my own faith + family, I need to sit back and surrender again. Hustle has been overriding grace and it doesn’t work. So I’m going back to doing something I haven’t done in a solid year: go back to running my business in 1.5-2 hours a day. It succeeded before just fine so why have I felt like more hours = more success? Nope. Just more burnout. Quality over quantity. If I respond a bit slower, that’s why. But I promise when I DO respond, you’ll have all of my attention vs 20% of my attention.
I teach my whole team how to run their business on one power hour a day and they succeed! One of our top coaches is a nanny and goes to school full time and CRUSHING her business, earning extra income for her life expenses + changing so many lives on 1 broken up power hour a day.
So it was time. One of the most valuable acts of kindness I can give my body is true rest. That's exactly what I am learning to do. I am learning how to work with a HOLY hustle and then make time for a HOLY rest. It's hard for me but absolutely vital. I am grateful for those who have been encouraging me along the way. I am an open book. I will tell you when I struggle and when I overcome by God's grace. So here's to a new chapter. Stay tuned.
