Alright, my modern Cinderellas. Today, your "Real Life" Fairy Godmother is here to talk about a common struggle many of us face–burn out.
In the fairy tale, Cinderella was run ragged by her wicked stepmother and wicked step-sisters. But in the real world, women often don’t need anyone else to boss them around. Some of us are our own worst step-sisters. We constantly bombard ourselves with relentless demands and never-ending to-do lists.
Often, we're doing things that aren't aligned with who we truly are. We're trying to live up to society's definitions of success, attempting to please others, worrying endlessly about how others might judge us, and setting unrealistic expectations for ourselves.
Sound familiar? If so, you’re already aware that you don’t have to wear rags to feel ragged. You might be a busy professional trying to succeed and lead at work; or you might be a worn out mom trying to meet the demands and needs of everyone around you, only to find there’s never enough time to get everything done–much less find time for yourself. The modern world has plenty of demands, and if we’re not conscious of why we’re doing the things we’re doing, it's easy to lose ourselves in the pursuit of an ideal that might not even be our own.
As your "Real Life" Fairy Godmother, I’m here to help you go from feeling ragged to revitalized. It's time to silence that inner critic, stop being your own wicked step-sister, and start living a life that's authentically aligned with who you are at your core.
Getting and staying authentically aligned is ultimately what will get you back on track to becoming your most brilliant and beautiful self. You don't have to conform to anyone else's expectations or wear yourself out trying to please the world.
If you’re picking up what I’m laying down, you know it’s time to banish those rags of self-doubt and burnout and start designing a life that's custom-made for you–a life that's as vibrant and dazzling as YOU are.
And, ultimately. That’s magic . . .
