I liked this post — also the book and Aibilene. Sometimes, happy people are tired and happy. Like the year I was my Dad’s end of life caregiver. Caring for Dad, being a Mom, running my business — plus writing — plus cooking, cleaning, shopping, Dr’s appointments, plus not ignoring family and friends. I’m a happy person in general but I was sure tired!!
You’re right, though — comes down to knowing how to figure out how much effort is required and not sabotaging yourself. :)
