896. Why You Should Lean Into The Ebbs Of Life

You know those seasons where you’re not seeing alot of results, not feeling super motivated, and everything just feels kind of monotonous? Even just reading that might make you want to run in the other direction, but those ebb periods of life are just as important as when you’re in a state of flow. Lauren and I discuss times when we’ve felt like we’re in a dormant season and how we’ve learned to trust the process and find comfort in the stillness. There are major lessons to be learned when things slow down and you’re challenged to find new containers and modalities for growth. Listen in to hear our conversation about embracing the ebbs of life.
