Day 42 Too Much Work Can Be a Bad Thing

Today my tip is about taking time off and getting re-charged.

I have always been a “self-driven” person and there was a time, back in the late 90’s when I was in business for myself, I had more work than I could imagine and was determined to do it all myself. I was working 15 hours a day 6 days a week and quite a few hours on my day off. Times were good, the money was coming in, but after about 2 years of this, I was so burned out I was ready to walk away from jewelry all together. I had lost my passion and that was not a good thing…… I decided to drop it all and take a 9-5 job (actually a 7:00 – 3:45) It took me a while, but the passion came back.

Now I know when I need my batteries recharged and when I get to that point, I like to take some time and get away. That is what I am doing this weekend, getting away, getting out into nature and enjoying life. I find when I do this, it refills my passion, joy, and I get inspired once again. So that is my tip to you today, get out once in a while, don’t get burned out, and you just might find something that inspires you.
