Burnout is not a regenerative lifestyle

Day 274/366 days Towards Self-Mastery.

It seems a lifetime ago that burnout was my constant companion. The smouldering type of burnout that is just under the surface, that the slightest provocation would send into a roaring flame. That just keeping up with things, just managing to stay ahead of the game, just meeting that deadline with nothing to spare, praying for time to stand still for just 3 more minutes to get that proposal away.

Sarah reminds us that a smouldering flame can be just as deadly as a flash fire, and she's right. That smouldering flame did enormous amounts of damage in my body, depressing my immune system, damaging my lungs, burning out my pancreas.
