  1. So this really helped me and came at me at a perfect time in my life, thank you! I struggle with this SO much. I work 15 hour days lately (crazy, I know) and with health issues on top of it, I’m getting to the point where it’s either rest or burnout. I’m choosing the first option. Thanks again for helping me and giving advice on how to handle busyness with the right perspective in mind, and I’m taking the steps necessary to stop being so busy. XD 🙂

    1. I’m so glad to hear this was so timely for you. It sounds like you and I were/are at pretty similar stages. Rest is definitely the better alternative to burnout. Excited for you to take steps in the right direction! =)
