You're stressed, cranky, can't sleep. You feel like you have done everything you can to shake it off, but it feels like you can't get out of the rut. 

Been there.

Hey guys! I’m on my way back to the US right now from an European cruise… OH MY GOD, am I right? I’ll share lots of pictures and what we did in a later blog post, but today I wanted to talk about something I dealt with before going on vacation. THE GUILT. THE STRESS. […]

Feeling Guilt about going on Vacation

June 9, 2019

Creating boundaries at work has lessened the perfectionism need. I mean, yes, I’d love to be great at my job, be the perfect wife, mom to my dog-children, be there for my friends and loved ones ALWAYS… but that’s not life. Most days, I am great at all of these things, and sometimes I suck. I’m allowing myself a little wiggle-room here. Wiggle-room is good.

My Mom’s Impact on my Mental Health

Is it difficult for you to explain how you are feeling? Just feel a whole mess of emotions but wondering how you can put it into words? We wrote an open letter to family & friends… we hope you understand.

An Open Letter to Friends & Family About Burnout

May 5, 2019

Hey there!

I am the social-working, Harry-Potter loving, Michigan-living girl behind Pause with Purpose. At my last job, I experienced burnout for the first time... I had NO idea what was going on, how to fix it, or if it could happen again. 

From that experience, Pause with Purpose was born. I don't want another woman to experience burn-out & stress & think she is alone. I don't want women to continue neglecting their mental health in the name of being a good mother, daughter, wife, sister, friend, professional.
