Sarah's Notes
About the time I was posting final grades last spring, I felt tired. Not just that normal end-of-the-year tired, but like “I hadn’t taken a deep breath in too many years” kind of tired. And honestly, it scared me. I wondered, "Is this what the singed corners of burnout feel like?"

People often remind us to take care of ourselves, but it’s tough in this profession where in the giving of oneself seems to be the premise of commitment and dedication. Remembering those singed edges, I realized it would be far worse to succumb to a flame.

Eight weeks later I found myself in the Rocky Mountains on a solo hiking trip, ready to think about how to recalibrate a balanced life. Perhaps my 10 life lessons from the trail will resonate with you too, as you walk towards your next year.
