the power of pause: how a retreat transformed my perspective

Remember when Forrest, after running across the country for years, suddenly stops and decides he’s tired of running? That scene is a poignant reminder that sometimes, the best way forward is to stop, reflect, and appreciate where we are.

In the midst of our fast-paced lives, it's easy to feel caught up in an endless cycle of tasks and responsibilities. Sometimes, it feels like we're running a marathon at a sprinter's pace, doesn't it?

Recently, I had my Forrest Gump moment at the SoulFit retreats in Mexico. In the rush of life and business, I realized I was overwhelmed, always feeling a step behind, like trying to keep up with the proverbial Joneses—or in today's terms, the latest AI tool or social platform.

I felt like I lost touch with my soul in the process of it all.

This retreat helped me see that we need these pauses. It’s vital to step back, take a breath, and truly assess what matters most. Just like Forrest, it was in the quiet of stopping that I found clarity and the strength to choose my next steps wisely.

Hence why I decided that writing these newsletters from the heart is where I’ll find my story and others will be able to find theirs!

Be great and live beyond limits!
