Taking the Time You Need: Your Life Can Depend Upon It
Last week, I read this post about the concept of retreating over at wise and wonderful Christine's Abbey of the Arts.
I realized -- and was quite startled by this though no one I know would be -- I realized that I not only never take a retreat but I don't know what it even means to do so.
I am just always pushing through.
I will start to feel better for a bit and think, "see...I don't need breaks..."
But everyone needs a break.
I'm taking one. For this whole week. I have scheduled some small posts but I won't be around.
I am getting too close to real and serious burnout. I need to get this under control. I need to figure out what is truly important and what I want to give my energy to.
How about you? Do you just keep pushing yourself, regardless of the consequences?
