What’s on your mind? I hope life is all you want it to be, and you’re full of hope for the future. Awesome! Sometimes, though, we hit bumps and obstacles. Then we need to step back and see things from a broader perspective, as I did during this nature meditation to relieve discouragement. The message I got is “Keep Climbing.”
If you feel discouraged, it’s possible you’ve become burned out without realizing it. So often we tell ourselves “I’ll feel better when [this] is over.” We blame how we feel on our circumstances. The reality is, once one thing is over, most likely another thing pops up.
I write a lot about burnout, because it threw me off track for several years. https://deborahrankinrd.com/burnout-everything-you-ever-wanted-to-know/
Radical self-care is the key to burnout recovery. That doesn’t mean taking vacations or hiring new help or taking bubble baths, though all those things might help. I mean making time every day for what your body needs–rest, movement, close connections with other people, hydration, nourishing food, time in nature.
