Finding ways to recharge is essential to leading a fulfilled life. A huge part of that conversation starts with priorities. I think at one time or another, we all find ourselves at the bottom of our own priority list. We are burnt out, and find ourselves treading water, just trying to keep everything afloat. It winds up being pretty easy to identify these traits in someone else, but much harder to see in our own lives.
My mom calls it ‘burnt toast.’ No matter what, you’ll take the end piece, the burnt piece, the piece no one wants ( dare I say deserves??). It’s that sacrificial martyrdom that we all fall into, especially as women. Even as an adult I still see it in my mom all the time. It’s a mom thing. Everything to everyone, and somewhere along even the thought of taking the time to recharge is exhausting.
It feels like there’s not enough time to take some time.
And that’s where we’re wrong.
Spinning our wheels is the most ineffective and tiresome way to live life. Everything suffers.
Recharging means different things to different people at different times. Sometimes recharging means going on a weekend trip, or taking a bath, reading a book, or spending time with a good friend. Regardless of how you recharge, it’s a part of keeping yourself healthy and living in a purposeful and effective way.
