To all my brothers and sisters
who push themselves hard
seeking to make strides and achieve in your passions.

My message to you is simple:

You are worthy of rest.

You are so worthy. 
We see your work, your hustle.
We know you, truly.
Admire your strength.
We see you shine.

And you, yes you
can pause
can breathe
can take a break
Come back with renewed inspiration.

But only from that quiet will you grow.
That fullness of you is not just in your work.

Rest your beautiful body,
your beautiful soul.

You will return brighter than before.
