When The Rah-Rah Fades

Saturday, January 30, 2016

It’s the end of January and, for many, the rah-rah high-energy that a new year brings is fading.

I’m not here to tell you how to get your groove back, but instead that sometimes it’s okay to just have a day.

Not every day has to be spectacular.
Not every day has to be over-the-top positive and cheerleaderish.
A day can just be a day.

It’s important to remember on days like this to take care of yourself and others as though the day were one of your favorites. This doesn't mean acting like a fake-it-till-you-make-it pollyanna, but rather choosing to not let things slide. If you work from home and don't have a specific business-required dress code, dress in whatever way makes you feel most empowered (for some that’s yoga pants and a top-knot, for others it's a dress and heels), eat well, and tackle your to-do list.

The people who make it in the long-term — who avoid burn out — are the ones who allow days to be whatever they are and who show up regardless of whether they feel like it or not.
