I have succumb to the bug that is…….the burn out. I confess I am a workaholic, perfectionist and proudly idealistic in my thinking. I want to save the world everyday but the only thing is that I am one person. In the space of trying to prove my worth I have done the unspeakable and subconsciously taken on the role of someone else as well as myself and now I am burnt ooouuut…say what?! I didn’t see that coming.
Let’s take a break. In a world that is constantly demanding and filled with cutbacks and uncertainty, I can only imagine that I am not the only 20 something year old trying to prove something to the world whilst still having my youth to fall back on…that’s not going to last long at this rate. God gave 6 days for work and 1 day for rest for a reason..not to waste it but to look at all the work that we do and give thanks to Him. It’s a day that is blessed and sacred and also shows that God honours and rewards hard work. We shouldn’t overwork ourselves otherwise we forget to spend that quality time with Him. When your body says stop, you must stop before it breaks you and the people around you.
