Sometimes we just need to shut up.

Drink some water, mind your business, listen. Then be quiet some more.
"I think rest is like the love languages...and we all have rest languages. It's about using your focus and your attention in different ways that perhaps are not as productive, or perhaps are not as corporate or monetized."
It's okay to be hesitant about what we're able & not able to do.
But, we have to recognize when we're being overly cautious & holding ourselves back.
Saying this for myself & anyone in the same space. Feeling like it's time to bet on me... but still grappling...

I'm in my mid-40s. I see a very nice path for the rest of my career in education. Getting a bit too old and too impatient to put up with what it'd take to climb higher or achieve status in another industry.
Finally exploring the other parts of who I am beyond school and work. 💜
