PSA: BURNOUTS ARE REAL. And I'm talking about the working too hard kind...not the lazy ones. It has taken me quite a few years in my career to learn to balance my health and the work that I do. Last year, I found myself in the hospital several times over the course of just a few months. Not only was I putting myself in jeopardy but the people around me because instead of taking a necessary beat, I kept going until I had to be basically quarantined. It kind of became my thing. As the saying goes, "Find a job you enjoy doing, you'll never work a day in your life" wellllll that's not exactly the truth. Even when I'm immersed in everything I love, I can still find myself going to lengths that are destructive to my health. #selfcare - balance - boundaries - whatever you may call it, are the only antidote to the #burnout - remember you are not alone and we need to take care of one another to keep making shit happen yo! ⭐️🙌♥️ #LessonLearned - @kelrei
