When perfection rules your life, it may be that you have lost the ability to find the right time for a rest. This can be very dangerous, because you want to maintain balance in your physical, emotional and spiritual aspects. The right time for a rest is when any aspect of yourself is being overloaded. If you surrender your knowing about your need for a rest, you are abusing the balance you need to live, love and create in a full and satisfying way. When you find yourself telling yourself that you will rest after__________, you are surrendering your power to something other than your highest good. Rest is sacred and necessary for a balanced life. Give it to yourself even when your intellect is telling you you have not done enough and you don’t deserve it. Take charge of the rest you need and bring balance back into your life.
