At what extent are you will to go to achieve your goals? And are your expectations in check?
These are a couple of questions we reflect on in this episode. These questions align to a time in Marilyn Shaw's life where she was coming unhinged. This pursuit of achievement, and everything else she was juggling (the life basics) took a major toll; one that sent her straight into the hospital with a mental breakdown.
Today's conversation with Marilyn is a reminder that we need to give ourselves grace, take care of our mental health, and ensure that we are staying dedicated and consistent, all while prioritizing rest and recovery.
In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, we're going deep into what it looked like for Marilyn to come back from a mental breakdown - and how it was driven by faith.
