We are now nearing the end of this year, and everyone and everything is shutting off. Businesses, schools, and people.
After a busy and difficult year, I am also looking forward to the summer holidays, where I can simply switch off and not think about anything or everything.
I’ve been asking myself why and how I got to this point. To be honest, I don’t want next year to be like what this year has been: difficult and tiresome.
What can I do to make next year better?
What steps and choices do I need to make so that I can make sure that I don’t end up at the end of 2023 the same way this year has ended up?
I’m running on empty. How did I get here?
We always talk about ‘a season of rest,’ but I’d much rather have a lifestyle of rest. I want to enter that zone where I know how to set boundaries, how to look after myself, and how to make sure I don’t run on empty again.
Recharging, then running on empty, then recharging again, only to run empty again… That doesn’t sound like a healthy cycle to live in. It doesn’t sound like a healthy lifestyle at all.
I want to be wise in how I live my life, and I want to make sure I don’t crash at the end of every year, desperately waiting for the summer holiday to begin…
