My Job was Killing Me




I loved my job…part of it anyway.

I was struggling with the rest of it. It felt like endless tasks of shit I didn't care about, wasn't good at, and dreaded diving into.

So I procrastinated. 

And pissed everyone off. 😓

The worst part was all the guilt and shame I piled on. My mind was wicked mean!

You’re lazy

You're pathetic

What the hell is wrong with you!

My inner bully was trying to motivate me.

(Bitch, get a clue!)

The truth was that I was forcing myself into a laundry list of tasks because I thought they were required in order to succeed.

Hot damn was I wrong!!

Once I worked out what I could let go of, my whole world changed!

The result? My task list was energizing! 

I felt good about myself, about who I was, and about how I was impacting the world!

But the best part was how it changed my personal life. ❤

Without being sad and tired and resentful every dang minute, I was free to get back to the present.

Before this work overhaul, my boyfriend and I had gone to Vegas. We got a fancy, in-suite hot tub with a view... yet all I could think about was what I "should be doing instead".


After? Hmmm….let's just say we didn't need a view to get in the mood 🤪🙃😚

This first career pivot was 16 years ago. I'm in a different industry and with an amazing (but different) partner now. But the positive effects of that overhaul are still with me.

Without figuring out my work stress, I wouldn't have been whole enough to even begin the wow-I-cant-think-of-words-big-enough-to-describe-how-life-giving relationship I'm in now.
