I got a brainstorm the other morning, straight from Spirit, Source, the Universe saying, “there’s exhaustion for women in business and it’s a big effing deal.”
I want to pull back the curtain on this because I hear about it from my clients all the time. It’s something I help them work through to become truly unstoppable while also staying aligned with their personal needs. Walking that line between pushing too hard and staying committed.
The big download was to talk to you about my own personal experience with exhaustion that’s happening right now. In fact, it’s been happening for the last six months.
And let me tell you, it hasn’t always been pretty.
There’s been some serious WTF moments.
Yet I’ve continued to show up for my clients and I’ve continued to do my work in the world. I think it’s important to talk about how this all works, and that’s what this Exposing Exhaustion series is all about.
First, I want to frame a little bit around what’s been happening for me and why I decided to share it.
If you’ve been following me, you know that I moved to Denver in the middle of last year and I loved it! It was amazing for me. It was such a beautiful place, I had a beautiful apartment where I could walk to everything, and I was so excited to be there.
Then I started getting exhausted.
Experiencing both physical exhaustion and brain fog (coming and going, not constant). I went to a functional medicine doctor and tried different supplements, taking a ton of tests. Then I thought it might be the altitude, so I moved myself across the country to lower altitude!! Doing EVERYTHING I could to explore and remedy what was causing this exhaustion (I continue to do this).
I’ll tell you… it’s become quite a thing in my life! A thing that my mind obsesses about, and I’m not pleased about that. I’d love to be able to set that down and just be content and at ease with whatever energy I have, but I have to admit… I’m quite attached to having high energy in my life! Having the energy to do whatever I want, whenever I want.
And why wouldn’t I? That, to me, is freedom. Just like financial freedom, energetic freedom is huge.
Part of why I’m sharing this is that I don’t want this dichotomy between showing up in the world one way while something else is happening behind the scenes. Truth be told, that’s okay. As business owners, we don’t have to communicate everything about our life to everyone all the time. But when it starts to feel like you’re hiding something or you’re not fully expressed, that’s not okay for me.
That’s the start… I’ll be sharing more soon, so stay tuned. :)
