I’m alive!

Yeah, it’s been a couple weeks since I posted more than a brief show description here on the website.

As much as I wish I could tell you that I was on a 10-day island retreat rockin’ my Superman speedo and sipping on spicy margaritas, I can’t.

The truth is, I got knocked on my ass by a moderate case of burnout.

As much as I love my job, I can sometimes go overboard on the reading, creating, and commitments.

Fortunately, and likely due to my former life as a health blogger, I can recognize the early signs and symptoms of hitting the wall.

So I called a time out.

I slept. Watched movies. Took a week off from yoga. Just chilled and stuff.

While some may perceive burnout to be a bad thing, as a menacing threat to health and wellness, I choose not to see it that way. Not at all.

To me, a bout of burnout here and there can be a perfectly normal indicator of living on purpose.

Napoleon Hill once wrote, “what a different story men would have to tell if only they would adopt a DEFINITE PURPOSE, and stand by that purpose until it had time to become an all-consuming obsession.”

Developing an all-consuming OBSESSION with your burning desire can send your brain and body up in flames, if you let it.

Or you can stay mindful of how you feel and know when it’s time for a little extra self-care. To call time out and take a seat on the bench.

On today’s Motivation Monday episode of the Quote of The Day Show, Eric Thomas is back to share the power of being OBSESSED.
