1 in 5 Americans works from home. In 2015 that amounted to about 48 million people. If you are one of these hardy souls, you know that working from home has its challenges. And if you’re a sensitive, caring spirit-preneur type – a healer, energy worker, integrative health practitioner, alternative medicine practitioner, naturopath, herbalist, Reiki practitioner, animal communicator, workshop leader, Qoya facilitator, massage therapist, body worker, etc. – you’re probably more likely to be sensitive to the needs of others, sacrificing your personal or business time to take care of someone else.
I hate to admit it, but I’ve been guilty of throwing my needs overboard at the first invitation. Because isn’t that what life is constantly doing? Inviting us to choose where to place our attention and energy? Whether we know it or not, life is made of such choices. The problem is, I didn’t always know that’s what I was choosing. And then, inevitably I’d start feeling resentful or overwhelmed, and that’s when I’d realize that no one’s gonna take care of my business but me.
