When you have given your all and feel like you have nothing left to give…that is a great time to do a little Rest & Renewal. Stop, don’t make any decisions; or, take any actions when you are feeling burned out and overburdened. Stop, take a few deep breaths and re-evaluate the situation when you are feeling more refreshed. Rest, eat healthy, drink water; ponder the blessings in your life and be thankful for them.
Don’t allow yourself to dwell on the negatives. It is too easy to feel discouragement or weariness in that frame of mind. When your vision is clear you will be in a better position to see things as they really are…assessing both the positive and the negative; allowing you to act accordingly.
Emotions and physical limitations can blind you to your actual situation. Give it a little time and remember to recharge your batteries. No one says that you have to do all and be all things to everyone around you. It is a wise person who takes the time to make sure that their own physical, spirtual, and emotional needs are met…then, and only then, can you continue to pour yourself out, or give to others in a real purposeful way.
