A Huge almost-spring hello to YOU, and a warm welcome to our new subscribers!
Some think the idea of achieving work-life balance is a joke. But it's no laughing matter for mission-driven women like us who are often overwhelmed and overworked by the soul-sucking pressures of work and life.
In our go-getting roles as mothers, doctors, lawyers, business owners, students, healers, and teachers, we parent, lead teams, juggle schedules, meet deadlines and much, more. In our desire to be of high service to others, it's easy to forget that it includes us. (Or we know it's important, but can't imagine how we could possibly fit it in!)
I hear you. I've been there.
From personal experience, I also know that if we're depleted and running on empty, unless we take a break to renew our mind, body, and spirit, it won't be long before we crash. (One woman actually said "I'll rest when I'm dead" when I suggested that she take a short break from an unreasonably intense assignment! Yikes!!)
I believe we teach best what we need to learn ourselves. After many years of trial and error, I'm happy to say my own resilience toolkit is overflowing with best practices that I openly share on how to burn brightly without burning out.
The Secret to Balanced Success is a Restorative Lifestyle -- that's why I'm so passionate about my role in Honoring, Serving, and Inspiring Busy Women to Work Smart, Play Hard, Rest Well.
Creating this begins in the realm of personal responsibility and self-leadership. It starts with realizing that you are in charge of loving the life you are living, and 100% responsible for being the CEO of YOU.
If you haven't heard, this week I got a Sobering Reminder that Life is short ~ luckily I swallowed a dose of fresh perspective and set myself straight, which you can read about here.
Once you read about what happened, you'll know why I'm super excited to be heading to Nagshead for Rest and Relaxation with some amazing sister-friends this weekend!
I'd love to hear from you ~ what are your favorite ways to unwind and enjoy spirited fun?
Until then, please do one special thing to keep your spirit happy... you are irreplaceable!
