All of Her

Every now and then I run out of steam and need a recharge but this time was different. I felt trapped in a deep slump that I needed to claw my way out of. I woke up one day and everything hit me at once: the feeling of being burnt out, feeling guilty because I should be able to "do it all", frustration with myself for feeling unmotivated and like I'm not doing enough when I know I give my all every single day. After releasing some tears (OK—a lot of tears) and sitting with the uneasiness, I began making...
