Don't Live Life On Empty

Jun 15
I soon realized that this way of living wasn’t working for me. Every single career I had came with burnout, and the only common denominator was me! The way I was operating wasn’t working - but for so long I thought it was the company or the team. 

BLAME is the opposite action to you being a leader of your own life and I was blaming my environment vs. auditing the way I was operating and fine-tuning my not so “healthy” patterns. 

We often put our whole selves into our careers and we prioritize results, busyness, and achievements over joy, connection, and doing the things that fill our tanks. This works until it doesn’t. We run into walls, fatigue, become uninspired, and before you know it that energy begins to fall into other areas of our lives. If your tank goes to empty, it’s hard to bounce back. It’s like losing sleep each night and trying to catch up in one day, it doesn’t work.                                                                                                  
This isn’t just about filling our tanks, it’s really about shifting our perspective to what the word “productive” means. Productive isn’t the number of things crossed off your to-do list, but it’s the quality of YOU that you bring to that “list”and most importantly that you bring to your life. In order to bring our quality SELF we need to balance how we spend our time, energy, and where we put our attention. 

Don’t live life on empty. Value yourself enough not to put all of your time, energy, and attention into WORK. Take control and become the leader of your own life.

Never forget the value of play, space, laughter, connection, and love. At the end of the day, we all want to be happy and full. Start by showing up for yourself today, even in the smallest way.
