military monday and..burnt out

Linking up for military monday for the first time..

And also just read this article - The burnt generation: They push limit work AND home. It's such an interesting read. I've been feeling pretty burnt out for a while now..always on the go, always on alert waiting for the next (bad) thing to happen..(I'm not pessimistic, just this year something pretty much happens every day or week, so it's more waiting for the next thing.)

This line really gets me - "Dr Borysenko believes women suffer so severely because they are more likely than men to be people-pleasers who ignore their own needs." It is so true. I think it's even especially true for military wives/spouses. If only there was a way to stop the burnt-out-ness before it gets to the point of breakdown.
