Quote of the Month - April
From Tricia Hersey, The Nap Ministry
“Resting is about the beginning process of undoing trauma so that we can thrive and evolve back to our natural state: a state of ease and rest.” – Tricia Hersey, Rest is Resistance: A Manifesto
Many us have heard Fannie Lou Hamer’s saying, “Sick and tired of being sick and tired.” As a voting, women’s and civil rights activist, Hamer was locked up, beaten, and abused. But she perservered.
Her powerful words have resonated with me for much of my life as I sought to understand and viscerally sense why I have been tired. After reading Tricia Hersey’s book, I decided to rest more and set stern boundaries.
Are you burnt out? Exhausted? What are you prepared to do about it and why?
