How to hustle and flow

hustle & flow sarah

A year ago, I gathered some girlfriends together for a gorgeous brunch, to celebrate our friend Nisha’s big move to San Francisco.

As we sat around the table, laughing and talking, I took a moment of quiet reflection…  It had been just 7 weeks since Nisha made the decision to move to my city, and there she was — a full-fledged resident and living just up the street from me.  Being that I was just 14 weeks pregnant, I was so grateful to have her here.

Nisha and I often have women say to us, “It’s wonderful that you have these leisurely lives, but don’t you sometimes have to hustle?  What about getting s#it done?”  The answer is: Yes!  Of course we hustle at times (and we get a LOT done)…life would be super boring if all we did was lie around reading magazines, with no ambitions.

What we both believe in, though, is honoring the rhythm that feels most natural and expansive to us.  We give ourselves plenty of space to play and dream, then — when a moment of clarity (or pregnancy, in my case!) hits us and we make a decision — we waste no time making s#it happen.  Hustling isn’t a way of life any more than lounging is — they are both valuable aspects of our lives, and each needs its own sacred space to unfold. {tweet it}

When I found out I was pregnant, I sprung into action, getting my announcement photos done, zig-zagging across the country to visit both my and Jonathan’s parents to tell them in person, getting Live More Weigh Less Mastery ready for an early launch (9 months earlier than planned) and mapping out my Parisian babymoon.

When Nisha realized it was time to move to San Francisco, she hustled quickly, booking her movers within 48 hours, giving notice on  her NY apartment, looking at 23 apartments in San Francisco until she found the perfect one, and spending time with her friends in NYC.

Because we respect both hustle AND leisure time, we can fully appreciate and inhabit the space we’re in.  When we hustle, we don’t freak out and get overwhelmed, because we know it’s temporary.  When we lounge, we don’t freak out that nothing is getting done, because we know it’s temporary.  So vacillating between these spaces can be fun and pleasurable.

At our LIVE FREE Online Event, starting next week, we are going to teach you how to do both: how to be a hustler and a lady of leisure like you really mean business.  Too much of one or the other is unsustainable, and frankly, a boring way to live.
