You know that the antidote to exhaustion is not necessarily rest?
“The antidote to exhaustion is wholeheartedness”
“You are so tire through and through because a good half of what
you do here in this organization has nothing to do with your true
powers, or the place you have reached in your life. You are only
half here, and half here will kill you after a while. You need
something to which you can give your full powers. You know what that
is; I don’t have to tell you.”
You must do something heartfelt, and you must do it soon. Let go
of all this effort, and let yourself down, however awkwardly,
into the waters of the work you want for yourself.
~ David Whyte quoting David Stein-Well in the book Crossing the Unknown Sea
