When we have big visions, dreams, and plans, and we’ve put a lot of effort and energy into them, what do we do when the unexpected happens? How do we create that space to replenish ourselves?

If you find yourself feeling unsettled, disorganized, and on edge, then this episode of the Lead with Love podcast is for you. Today I’ll share how to balance your ambition with deep rest, play, and stillness.
