First Steps to Recovering From Burn-out as an Entrepreneur

First Steps to Recovering From Burn-out as an Entrepreneur

The first steps to recovering from burn-out as an entrepreneur is acknowledging that I am burnt out. I resisted this for a long time. I didn’t want to admit that I was in burn-out and thought if I just kept doing more that it would be ok. At the same time, I was feeling a lack of desire to share content on social media. I had been posting between 20-30 different pieces of content on 5-8 platforms DAILY.

Until one day I couldn’t do it anymore. I broke down in front of my husband and told him that I couldn’t physically do any more. My body was in pain, my creativity gone, and my mindset shattered.

Where is Our Gratitude Now?

Where is Our Gratitude Now?
In April 2020 I shared a post called a Tsunami of Gratitude. I wonder, where is our gratitude now?

There has never been a time such as this in our lifetime.

Our Facebook feed used to be full of thankful memes, now it's filled with misinformation and disinformation, designed to divide us.
Our homemade hearts that filled our windows have long since faded.
Car parades to help our kids celebrate their birthday in isolation have been replaced with funeral processions.
And at 7 o'clock in the evening around the world, no one is making noise to honour our health care workers anymore.

The Most Powerful Gratitude Habit I've Learned
At this time in my life, I had a solid evening gratitude journaling practice. I was going through some challenges with our living situation and also struggling with self-esteem and self-worth. I knew there had to be a way to get through this with gratitude. And this practice of being grateful for what I didn’t appreciate was going to be it. I asked my friend Karen if she would join me. Without hesitation, she said yes.

I chose to stay off all social media from Friday at 6 pm until Monday morning, after sunrise. It was a great experience and I'll be doing it again. As I lean into Day 9 of the 30 Day Whole Body Detox program I'm grateful for all the ways we get to detox this month, should we choose to.

Why is it So Hard to be a Human Being?

Why is it So Hard to be a Human Being?
There are days when I wish I wasn't an Empath.
I wish I wasn't a Highly Sensitive Person.
I wish I was someone who didn't care what others think of me.
I wish I stood up for myself more often.
I wish I had the conviction to ask.
I wish that I wasn't afraid of being judged when I speak my mind.
I wish I had the courage to dream bigger.
I wish I didn't have the urge to run away when things get tough.
