We are all feeling it, the struggle to maintain what is being asked of us in our current circumstances. How can we grow our capacity to reach for the lives we want to live, if we are barely surviving the day? If we are functioning on reserves and living in deficit, there is no platform to thrive from. Saying “yes” when we mean “no” and ignoring our bodies screaming at us is like a ticking bomb. Propping up on false energy to kick start the day; then sedating ourselves just to get to sleep at night is going to have its ‘use-by date’. Burnout is no longer an ‘if’, but a ‘when’.
WSGR is a collection of lived wisdom by everyday people who know the ache of tiredness in their bones. Who have recovered in many ways themselves and are preventing burnout in their own lives. People who have discovered what it’s like to stop pushing and it not being the end of the world.
“It’s not natural to push yourself to breaking point, and yet so many people seem to be doing it because they feel they have no choice”.
– Meghan Kurts
The Nitty-Gritty (Part 2) of the book covers the many colours of motherhood, marriage, sex, money, and how to nourish ourselves. It’s a resource to help you manage the day-to-day wilderness and prevent burnout with practical tools and meaningful insights from people just like you.
This book gives you choices and clear pathways to recover from the pandemic of burnout that we experience in our culture today. WSGR is less about words and more about experience, with activities, assignments, colouring-in, and stories of common humanity. There are many paths and voices in this collection, and because of this vastness, it’s more likely that you will hear or find something that speaks uniquely to you.
In the day-to-day moments where it really counts, you can stand solidly on your own two feet and feel truly resourced and resilient. This is the place from where we can offer our gifts. It all starts in our own homes, taking reasonable responsibility for our physical and emotional wellbeing. It’s not about keeping up or getting ahead. It’s about finding our own rhythm and knowing our value, equal to every other human being. So that we can really start to make a difference in the world.
