I Survived Burnout More Than a Few Times, and Here's What I Learned

Burnout used to be like an old wild and disruptive friend who would show up in my life at the most unlikely times. One summer in particular when I was on a vacation with my family, I was a wreck. I couldn’t enjoy my time with my husband and daughter who were soaking up the sun, swimming, and enjoying their free time. I, however, could only see life through a very negative lens and spent more time brooding than playing. In the weeks and months leading up to that vacation, I had worked myself to the bone, was feeling under pressure on some personal family matters, and hit the proverbial wall. I had nothing left in my engine for myself or anyone else. Burnout is a regular visitor to my life as I always step in to help others Unfortunately, that wasn’t the first time burnout showed up. A hard worker and high achiever dating back to elementary school, my primary focus was on achieving at all costs. I am also a caregiver by nature feeling the need to step in and help when others need help

Miniature Paintings by Julia Las Julia Las is a 31-years-old artist from Ukraine. I started to make watercolor miniatures about three years ago when I worked at the office all day and didn’t have enough time to create anything bigger. I grew fond of this process of putting an amount of details into so tiny space. Now miniatures are my passion. All of my paintings are not bigger than 3 cm in length, and every time I create something new is a real challenge for me. When I paint, I feel like a jeweler who is cutting a diamond, having no right to make a mistake. I paint with bated breath. More info on her  Instagram .
