Learning to Overcome and Rise Up

Burn Out


Have you had days when getting out of bed is just harder than it used to be? Do you use language like “I need a bottle of wine” when you used to just need one beverage. A work or life experiences replay in the back of your mind, interrupt your sleep with dreams and forgiveness is just so far out of reach.

As a nurse, burnout and resiliency have been key words in my career. Now, more than ever, these words reach every aspect of our lives. Work, home life and family experiences can all bring about the need for resilience.

If you feel poured out and never replenished, you could use a dose of resiliency. Join me this year, 2021, as I blog about my experience with resiliency, burn out and rising up. You are welcome here.

Burnout doesn’t have to steal your joy. Resiliency doesn’t have to be hours of work either. Learning to adjust your thinking, choosing to forgive where needed and getting up again makes the difference. I’m here to help. Let’s get started.

Resiliency – the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.

In this past year we have stepped away from the table, from community and from many things which brought us life before quarantine. The days may have seemed on repeat. Birthdays spent in the yard with car trains. Masks on faces make everyone look like strangers. How do we rise up to find life in the new normal? How do we turn 2021 into the year of resilience in our own lives? Hang out here with me as we journey together to discover ways to be resilient.

I get it. As an ICU nurse, a mom, a business owner, a community member and family member life can get a bit fuzzy. I have spent most of my career looking at how to get back up again after a rough shift, rough season or rough anything. Join me this year, 2021, as I blog about what I have learned through it all.
