Are You Wonder Woman?

MountainYou’re probably wondering what this photo (taken from an Alaska cruise) has to do with the title of this post.

I’m trying to drive a point home. Even though you certainly ARE Wonder Woman because of all the great things you do, you may be avoiding taking care of yourself. (I call that Wonder Woman Burnout.)

This includes working too hard and/or taking care of everyone besides yourself. If that’s the case, then you need a break.

So do yourself a favor, and imagine you are in a nice cozy restaurant enjoying a lovely meal with a beautiful view. After all, you deserve it.

And when you have a moment, plan a getaway. Even if it’s small. Whatever you can squeeze in. It’s important, really.

It reminds me of the story of the old lumberjack who was in a competition with a younger lumberjack. During the competition the old guy took a break, and after he came back he ended up winning the competition.

Everyone wondered how he managed to win by taking a break, and his response was “while I was away I sharpened my blade”. So take a break, and go sharpen YOUR blade, and you’ll have better results.
