The Burnout is Real


Do you ever get to those moments when you’re just ready to fall apart from all of the stress you have from all of the things on your to-do list? I am experiencing major burnout feels. That sounded so millennial. Oh well… The point is that I am overwhelmed, thus I am hitting the wall in being burnt out of everything I’m doing right now. I need to figure out a way to recharge and reset myself.

I know I love what I do. I’ve just been pushing myself so hard lately that I’m burning myself out. So I’m working on forcing myself time to think and make the time to recharge and reset myself.

There are so many seemingly daunting things on my to-do list and events that seem so far away but will be here before I know it. I need to find myself a day to just sit with pen and paper or with my camera and just create for the sake of creating. I was semi-recently asked what gives me energy. The creation process. Each step of it provides something that is just so much fun and it brings about other thoughts which takes my brain out of it’s natural never ending spiral and…it’s just great. I need to create the time for me to do that. I need to carve out the time and protect it. It needs to be something that I allow myself to do and not just do when I have an idea or reach this point where I am counting the days until I can breathe again.

The burnout is real and I need to get better about paying attention to the signs and doing something about it. I need to stop making excuses for myself about why I should put it off until later and just do it.

I want to dive in to something new and exciting and in the fictional world. Because everything in reality is already beautiful and creative and fun. I’m just stressing myself out too much to enjoy it. So it’s time to take a step back and breathe and dive back in.
