Well it has been a busy few weeks, in fact, it’s just been none stop busy, and I am going to admit a tad too busy for my liking, do you ever feel that way? It’s surprising how busyness sneaks up on you really isn’t it, there you are mooching along at a happy rate and suddenly someone somewhere turns up the speed on the conveyor belt of life, you start to smell burning and realise it’s you.
You have blown a fuse and everyone around you is hiding for cover, sound familiar?
I have fallen off that conveyor belt a couple of times during my life, dusted myself down and got back on before even taking a breath. Fortunately, I have learnt over the years that it is that jumping back on without looking round and taking in the situation that can lead to burnout. This time though, as I was deeply engrossed in too much busyness a little song started in my head ….Let it go …Let it go….you know, the one from Frozen.
It made me sit up and take note, I considered perhaps I was not behaving in a healthy manner and the situation might be a slippery slope to burning out which would not good for my well-being at all.
We all get those little nudges and whispers and if you are ever in the same position I hope you recognise yours, be it subtle words or even like myself a song taht makes you sit up and notice that life is running fast forward a tad too much.
For now though, enjoy all that this month has to offer and remember if it all gets too much deep breath and LET IT GO!
