Dear Super Girl:
My big lesson in what 2013 brought forward was to recognize when I was getting burnt out. Last year, I worked to the point where I HAD to take a six-week break just to get back in balance.
This year, I’m about taking small breaks when I get even a tiny glimpse of burn out.
And guess what? This week, I got a glimpse. And to be honest, I was surprised when the glimpse came about! Rather than pretend it wasn’t there, or power through the burn out the way I know I can, I accepted it and worked part-time all week.
I’m so grateful I learned this very important lesson.
I put lots of energy into me, my health, and wellness this week. I painted! I danced. I slept in. I went for a bike ride and I watched the sunset with a loved one.
This is what I painted this week! It’s hanging on my mantel now.
Earlier in the week, I got a call from our friends at Cox Communications. They are partnered with our friends at USA Network. You’ll remember that I was one of the Characters Unite recipients in 2013. I’m so proud of that! USA Network launched the 2014 Characters Unite campaign in February and it’s so awesome! They are on a National RV Characters Unite College Campus Tour to encourage folks to take part in the “I Won’t Stand For…” campaign. They’re stopping at Arizona State University (also friends of ours!) and we were asked to join them!
In my “Me Week”, I’ve been really thinking about what I stand for (or won’t stand for). It’s obvious that I stand for empowerment and sisterhoods. And it’s obvious that I won’t stand for bullying. Severson Sisters and our Super Girl program are built around those concepts.
I realized this week that I am really dedicated to having balance this year. I empower myself to find it, take part in it, and live it. When I’m balanced, there’s more room for others to dig in and live in Severson Sisters they way I have a habit of doing. When I’m balanced, my relationships are better.
I stand for empowerment.
What about you?
Sending you all my very best Super Girl energy for an empowered kinda day!
