Rhodes, here we come! Are you good at taking time off? Me…not so much 😳
After releasing my 1st EP a month ago I felt this intuitive voice inside me saying “take a little break, slow down, celebrate…” But I didn’t do a very good job at that and just kept going.
I think it’s because I’m pretty much a createaholic. I love writing, I love songwriting, I love singing, I love producing, I love marketing… I love alllllll the things and my creative to-do list just seems to never, ever end.
On the one hand, it feels like a blessing to wake up each day excited and disciplined to get going. But there’s a downside to that as well…which is when all of that creating starts to come from a place of restlessness. From a sense of running behind. From a fear of simply never doing enough.
That’s the space I’ve been in lately. And it ain’t pretty 😜
Sometimes, after finishing something that takes a lot out of you, you simply have to take a step back for a bit and rest.
First, rest. First, relax. First, refill your soul tank. Then, create again.
As someone reminded me of last week: building things that matter takes time. And you can’t skip REST to skip ahead on the timeline of your life.
Can you relate?
PS: I look forward to some proper rest next week in Greece! I’ll be sending you sunny chill out vibes from a distance. Yesssssss ☀️
