This week is the FIRST week of my full beta course… Burnout Survival: Whole Self-Care for Professional Women. (If you’re not in this round, fear not, we’re launching in a few weeks - reply and let me know if you want in or put your email in here.)
We are just digging into what burnout looks and feels and sounds like.
Next, we’re going to talk about the shocking root cause.
Then, what does healing look like? In real life. (Way, WAY beyond and better than spa days.)
I’ll give you a small piece of the Whole Self-Care model right now…
Pay attention to the things you like.
Not “pay attention” in the sense of active listening, eye contact and head nodding.
But PAY attention. Pay with attention.
Honor those things with your time, your focus and your energy.
Invest in what you like. Learn more about it. Spend time thinking about it. Play with it. Talk about it.
I was remembering the other day, being a kiddo, playing with my dolls on the floor and tracing their bodies onto fabric - making patterns. As a six year old, playing with neighbor friends, I loved the way Barbie’s clothes could give her basically an entirely different lease on life. I spent all my play time just changing doll clothes.
Because I like clothes.
I always have. I like looking through a store even when I don’t want to buy anything because it feels like creative inspiration. Any other spatial reasoning and visual learners out there?
Bodies change. Tastes evolve. Priorities shift. And less and less attention was paid to that creative part of “me” that likes clothes. Then, one day, clothes don’t make sense the way they used to.
Non-profit to corporate
Corporate to work-at-home
Single to married
No kids to kids (and breastfeeding) (and machine washable is a necessity) (and why are kids always kind of grimey?)
And I’m not in my 20’s anymore
And I need to talk in front of an audience?! Of executives?! Who control my career?!
And then I met Bridgette Raes. I remember finding her through another blog post that was talking about closet curation - “shop your closet.”
All of the simplicity and practicality PLUS psychology of style - Bridgette’s got it.
Her color theory (base + accent + pop) made my brain & heart light up! It’s still bookmarked on my laptop and phone. (If you like that, check out her packingand capsule posts!)
I devoured all of her posts and had to meet with her. She is a wardrobe whisperer for REAL women, in REAL life, in REAL bodies. And she pulls no punches.
Now! I’m so excited!
