Do you feel burned out?

Burnout is a physical or mental collapse, usually caused by massive stress and overwork – in an effort to work more and better, you actually ruin your ability to work at all.

We never think it is going to happen to us.

Especially if you are a doer and used to be independent, doing life on your own…

You think you can keep pushing through it…

You think you will be just fine…

You think admitting that something is wrong would be a weakness…

Until your body says enough is enough…

With whatever crisis or diagnosis it come up with…

When I was told my Stage 3 Bowel Cancer diagnosis was bad luck…

I would have been stupid to accept that BS explanation…

I had to admit I had been dragging myself to the ground for years….

I mean…

I am talking about 15 years plus…

I needed to accept 100% responsibility and that can sound heavy or taxing…

But unless you accept 100% responsibility for your life, how can you change things?

I wanted to change things….

I wanted to change everything and I did…

When I look back I feel incredibly compassionate about the old version of myself…

That person who tried to do life on her own…

Who was never able to be proud of what I had achieved…

Who was constantly dragging herself to the ground to do more…

Who never spent any time getting to know who she really was…

My diagnosis came as my crisis…my burnout…

If you feel you are exhausted all the time, emotionally disconnected to yourself, spiritually lost and unfulfilled….

Stop pushing through it..

Be courageous enough to say enough is enough….

Be brave to take full responsibility of your life….

You are the only one who can change it…
