I was listening to The Happiness Lab on my way to work this morning. I’ve been trying to listen my way through the podcast. I think I’m now only a year back. Anyway, this morning I was listening to an episode about burnout.

I think I’m burnt out.

It might have been only a couple of years ago when I felt burnt out. I remember it being a whirlwind of a time for me. This time is different. This time, I think that my burn out is a result of something different, something more insidious. And, I think, too, that whatever I’m trying to do to combat the feeling is not quite enough.

I don’t want to be here but avoiding it isn’t going to make the situation better. Maybe this is why yesterday’s Wordle result resonated with me.

It feels a bit like I’ve been spinning my wheels lately. I’m uncomfortable when remaining stagnant. I can get myself in trouble when things slow down too much so I want to be sure to do what I can to lessen the impacts of what’s become a pandemic, of sorts, of its own.
