The Difference Between Discipline and Masochism

If you are that woman, that one who's always pushing, always achieving, always doing...

Where are you when it comes to pushing to make time for you?  Where are you when it comes to achieving balance between work/achievement and downtime/play?  Where are you when it comes to just being...chillin?

I bet reading this makes you strung out just thinking about "chillin"...

Who's going to save the day and get everything done if you're off "chillin"?

Better question to pose:

Who's going to be there to fill your amazing shoes if you get sick or broken or burn out or hurt because you haven't learned how to pause, reboot and enjoy yourself?

THIS IS A NON-THREATENING MESSAGE ABOUT HEALTH

You can't have a whole life if you only look at, tend to and practice perfection as much as you can’t have a whole life if you practice zero awareness or attention.

Just as a perfectly portioned, nutrient dense gold star-of-a-diet could be considered the light/good/right side of nutrition,
