STRESS!! The thumbnail for this video says it all. Sometimes the stress seems like it is just too much and you want to scream!
I get it. I TOTALLY get it.
As an entrepreneur, small business owner, and the bread-winner of a single income family. I completely understand.
But I used to feel like the woman in this picture almost every single day. I was either ready to burst and scream, or I was so run down, broke down, and exhausted that no amount of coffee could keep me awake, alert, and going.
But the worst part? I was basically wearing my over working, stressed out, and over committed self as a badge of honor on my chest. It was like somehow my career was more valid and important because I worked over 80 hours, 7 days a week, and with out breaks.
I said yes to everything. Literally every opportunity that came my way I said yes and I took something else on to my plate, but then my plate got so full that I didn't even know where to start.
Plus, I was choosing a lot of this stress! I was choosing to work that much, take on new projects, and never say never.
I just couldn't keep up, and honestly, why would I want to? Why are we so obsessed with being more, doing more, having more, just MORE.
But I decided to change and stop wanting, expecting, and taking on more. And my life changed.
