So what if I've spent years writing about the salutatory benefits of self-care, holistic health, and spiritual practices? I've been moving forward with everything I think I'm supposed to be doing -- writing, speaking, training, consulting -- by sheer force of will, neatly wrapped in near-complete denial about how I'm feeling.
Here's the simple truth: I'm core-level exhausted.
If I had to guess, I'd say that I passed from being merely tired during October 2013 to serious depletion by the end of January 2014. Now, I'm a living breathing flat-liner...who ordered a live-streaming package from Xfinity to support the semi-vegetative state I'm embracing for Lent.
