Our Burnout Opt-Out course with Nataly Kogan ended this week, and I’m so grateful for the impact it had on those who took it. A lot shifted for me.
The biggest aha! in the course was the module on acceptance. Acceptance can get a bad rap. It isn’t shrugging and giving up and saying “oh well…” It’s actually the opposite. Accepting the reality of the moment without judgement, without all the stories our brain tells us — This always happens to me! I am so alone! They did this to me on purpose! —allows us to shortcut allllllll of that emotional labor and just focus our energy on solving the problem.
