We’re a few weeks into 2023 and I’m curious…
Did you resolve to slow down and figure out the work-life balance thing this year?
Or are you still hustling 24/7?
No judgments either way. There are times we hustle to get things accomplished and seasons when self-care has to come first, especially if you’re an entrepreneur or small business owner.
Sometimes work-life balance requires drastic changes. Like changing jobs because it’s clear your current position is driving you nuts. Or selling your business and starting a new one like I did two years ago.
We can also find balance through smaller changes. Things like setting clear boundaries even though part of you is scared of disappointing people. That’s a tough one for people-pleasers.
But you know what’s scarier than disappointing people?
Sacrificing your own well-being.
Losing your passion for life and feeling overwhelmed.
Resenting a job or career you used to love because you’re too busy trying to do it all and keep everyone happy (an impossible task, by the way).
You deserve to live a balanced, joyful life and balance starts with boundaries.
Want to dive deeper? Heather Roberts and I had a fabulous conversation about balance (and entrepreneurship) on her new podcast, Boundaries, Business, & Boobs.
Give it a listen and then let me know if it resonates. I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments or shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Sending gratitude and love your way,
