I just spent an evening talking with some amazing women about our lives and what we are hoping to create in the future. One after another, we shared how we are tired of doing nothing but working, of endlessly answering emails and texts and trying to just keep up with the mundane tasks of daily life. We long to do more of what’s really important, what makes us come alive, what truly nourishes and inspires us. I believe this is not only possible, but something our very souls are urging us to do: we’re all being called to find the will and courage to create a fulfilling life for ourselves instead of letting the outside world dictate how we spend our days. What’s the worst that could happen if you put your own health, joy and well-being first? Maybe the worst thing that could happen would really be the best. If it frees you from frittering away your days on ultimately meaningless chores, then maybe losing whatever you might lose by choosing to nourish your soul is really the best thing that could happen to you.
