Bonnie Gray wrote this amazing book, Finding Spiritual Whitespace: Awakening Your Soul to Rest, and after I read it, I had, had to, HAD TO, sit down and talk to her. In this world of go go go, do more, do it all well and don’t forget to look amazing doing it, this book is powerful reminder that finding rest is not a luxury but a necessity.
Bonnie and I discuss our typical coping mechanisms, our fear of not being valuable, of doing it all and doing it well or feeling like a failure, and ways to shift the paradigm not only in our own lives, but the lives of those around us.
If you wonder:
– what is my value
– would anyone love me or like me if I stopped “doing”
– how can I recharge when there is no end in sight
– how much more can I give
then this podcast is absolutely for you. Give yourself permission to listen to our conversation, then move towards finding your inner whitespace.

Oh my, Bonnie, I have been in that story. The only difference was that I was “asleep” in my room, listening to the argument. Thank you.
