I finally took a vacation with my family. After being on the road for six weeks (an accomplishment I bragged about online) I was completely exhausted. One little joke from my sister and I broke down in tears. I wasn't just burnt out, I was fried,
I took some time outside to myself and cried it out. (Now that's a formula to feel better - fresh air and a good cry!) When I got back home I started doing things differently. I created routines that energized me. I adopted habits that fulfilled me. I learned to say no. I broke the cycle of burnout that had gripped me for years.

states I've visited
lists written in a week
marathons i've run
cups of coffee per day
