Running on empty?


Share this :   | | | |

If you’re feeling exhausted lately, from doing too much, worrying all the time and running yourself ragged, don’t give up. Call on friends to help!  Just like in the picture, it takes a village to push a stalled car, and it can take your own support village to help you over the rough spots.

When you try to be stoic, and handle everything alone, the result is a huge amount of stress!  Plus often what happens is that we build a resentment that others didn’t magically know we needed assistance and come to our aid, unasked.

How often do you refuse help?  A happy and stress-free life is not one led in isolation, but rather one where you realize you are part of this world and we are all on this journey together. We depart at various times, and there are always new arrivals. But while we are here, we are meant to share with each other.

Remember the old saying:  troubles shared are halved… and joys shared are doubled.

your happiness guru,
