Burned at Both Ends

We can't do everything. Really. How many of us over-commit to everything we're asked to do, for a variety of reasons? Schedule-stuffing is an epidemic. Perhaps it is for our own  self-esteem that we get from the badge of honour of having accomplished something extra. And we do it to please others to get their approval. Then we end up in situations where we genuinely are required and needed to do everything out of necesessity. 

Today I reached complete physical exhaustion. No matter how much I wanted to be a robot doing everything perfectly, my body disagreed with that idea. My naggine sub-conscious was saying, "You know better!" My schedule was literally making me ill. It was jam packed like a suitcase on holidays. We need to listen to what we need, or we cannot serve anybody.  

A guest speaker or two at RYLA told us to look after ourselves. They may have been onto something there. These speakers told us to get 8 or 9 hours of sleep. We were also told to take breaks. A group of us even practiced meditation. It's time to live like a RYLArian again and take some down time.

With that in mind, don't expect too many blog posts today (jokes).
