About Dr. Claire
I was busy being a high achiever. I was busy at work. When I got home, I was tired. I had work to do there as well. I was trying to hold it all together and couldn’t seem to figure out what I could let go off.
Every time a challenge came, I accepted it. Everything was possible. I took on more and more responsibilities envisaging, planning, executing, traveling, supervising staff . . . It was all stuff I could do, so, why not do it? Can you relate?
However, there was a problem and I didn’t even realize it. I was burning out and losing myself in the process. I was doing and that was it. I was not guarding my inner person. I was not guarding my time with God and others. I was squeezing out my space to rejuvenate. My health was suffering.
For many years people saw the achievements but they didn’t see the cost.
I found a framework that worked and continues to work. Whenever my blaze starts to go down, I go back to that space. Having time to blaze, living well, beats achieving without heart and soul.
As a high achiever who has been responsible for multiple programs at the same time in different arenas, had oversight of staff, I get that overwhelmed feeling that seeps into your personal life. I know what it is to hold my head up, smile as if all is well but . . . I also know what it is to smile, and hold my head up because all is well.
I’m here for you.
