Sometimes we are just tired, burned out, overwhelmed and just want to lay down. Unfortunately, life does not stop when we do. Work still needs to get done, and sometimes we need to work through pain, exhaustion, fear, stress and so on. We just have to.
Now, I completely advocate and believe in working hard and playing hard. I believe in taking breathers and enjoying the fruits of our labor, whatever that may mean for you. However, when work needs to be accomplished, this takes priority.
