something changed this summer. something inside of me shifted, altered & grew off balance.
this summer, i became a workaholic.
tears well up when i even begin to type that word.
isn't that for the ceo of walmart & the highly successful business suit type?
no, it actually fits quite nicely into my story... the long days, the numerous cups of coffee, the sleepless nights, the insomnia, the to-do lists & the neglected relationships.
it explains the poor judgement, the grumps & the weight gain.
i am a blogger & a homemaker & a workaholic.
i lack work boundaries & life balance. i push myself until the wee hours of the morning & set my alarm to pop up before daylight. all for the sake of a to-do list & the approval of others.
friends, does this ring true in your life?
how did we get here?
do you need rest? i need a nap.
i wish i could wrap this up with a pretty bow on top & entitle this blog post, "how i conquered workaholism & found balance", but i would be lying.
i continue to struggle & lack rhythm. i still say yes far too often than i should, but i am finally recognizing my need for rest & balance.
so here i am, telling you i need change.
here i am sharing my guts out, sharing my inner most flaws & doubts.
here i am sharing my mantra for this week:
seek balance & fight workaholism by
+ getting a full seven hours of sleep each night
+ eating well
+ saying no at least once this week
friends, i would love to read your stories & journeys. i would love to read how you find rest & balance each week.
