Feminist Mantra Monday 24: Re-Magic Yourself
I hit a wall last week. And I hit it hard. Like 80mph car crash hard. Go to bed for a whole day hard. I was coming off of seven days of work that included copyediting a federal grant proposal, building a podcast from the ground up, buying a new car and my normal work/life activities, and I burnt out hard. At the end of it, I was exhausted and found myself in bed at 7pm with a migraine that still hasn't entirely gone away.
So this week's mantra is about coming back from those moments. Losing your mojo and figuring out to find it again.
I have to admit that I didn't make up the phrase re-magic yourself. It's pulled from a horoscope of mine from back in 2015. Here's the grainy, dumb-phone photo I took of it back then:
I've carried this photo around with me since 2015, and now that it's Aries season again, I figure we can all use some opportunities to re-magic ourselves. Are any of you feeling burnt out lately? Have you found new magic? Be on the lookout, loves, your chances are on the way.
