I DONT WORK FRIDAYS - 4 days of work, 4 short shifts, then that’s me. And this is exactly why! A day of monkeying around and some quality time with my little man. I’ll never get this time back so I intend to make the most of it! #motherandson#selfie#love
I know how it goes. You are excited to get the job in the big city. Every time you are at the office you feel like you have made it. Like really made it. You are excited to work in an office that is so freaking tall, in a building that you have only seen in movies until now.
You get acquainted with your job, your colleagues are super nice and everyone is raving about the work life balance and how supporting everyone is.
Then, reality hits. A few weeks into your new job, dealing with clients and the day to day problems arise, you start to feel like it's just one of those jobs. The excitement about the new equipment, the new colleagues and the new tasks starts to wear off and you are starting to feel drained. The work life balance that everyone raved about, turns out to be just a myth that has to be said and talked about to get you on board. In the end, it's all about making money fast for someone else. Authenticity and uniqueness don't count anymore.
This is not what I signed up for. I want to be excited for my job every single day. I want to proudly be able to talk about what I do. Feel energized and pumped about it when I get up every day. And not treading having to go into work. And you know what, it's possible! Don't believe me, take the time to talk to me and maybe I can give you that glimpse of hope or motivate you to go for it as well.
Was talking to a patient this week about the desire to work less and live more. I think many who experience burnout at some point in their careers become more likely to take vacations or make decisions that prioritize wellbeing over work. I was reading over some of my first posts on physician burnout that were published in KevinMD.com in 2015 and realized how sh*tty life felt back then, but ultimately changed for the better. So if you're feeling burned out, overworked, or unappreciated at your job, don't give up. The first step is recognizing that we deserve happiness for all the hard work we put in, and that we have a lot more control over our life decisions than we know ✊🏼.
Feels so good to be back on track after being sick. It's true what they say. Health is wealth. I will never go back to my old routine, which is spending 16 hours straight working. In the end, your so called "JOB" will not love you back. #OTnoMore#worklifebalance#jogging#morningjog
Man, this week has been a whirlwind. I don't know about you, but I am BEYOND excited for the weekend. There have been some ups and downs, but today I am focusing on the positive.
The idea of mindfulness and gratitude has been hard on my heart this week as I dealt with some frustrating situations, so instead of a traditional #FridayIntroductions , I am going to give you my gratitude list. This is something I started doing over the last several months (if you haven't looked into the @fiveminutejournal, do it) and it has been life-changing.
Today I am grateful for:
1. An amazing support system, not only from my friends and family. Even in the most frustrating of circumstances, I am encouraged and supported and shown grace by them. I have so many strong-willed women in my family and they continually teach me how to be a better woman, friend, and member of our society.
2. I am so grateful that I have been given the opportunity to follow my dreams. It took many years of struggle, but I am so blessed to be able to work in my field, help fellow entrepreneurs, and live life on terms set by me and not someone else.
3. I am so grateful that on June 30th, 2017 I met the love of my life on an online date and have been inseparable ever since. He makes me a better person and we help each other grow every single day.
4. I wasn't born in Tulsa, but I am so grateful that I call it home. My father passed almost 3 years ago and it is because of his hard work as an entrepreneur, I was able to make Tulsa my permanent home by buying my first house. I am a West-sider now and this house was meant for me. The year it was built was the year my dad got his real estate license. It is on a public golf course which was his favorite pastime. This house had 4 offers on it, was on the market for 10 days, and somehow my offer won. It is like he was watching over me and helping me with his realtor awesomeness the whole way and I get to wake up every day and be reminded of him.
5. Last but certainly not least, today I am grateful for my fellow #Ladypreneurs (you know who you are). You all are constantly encouraging me and inspiring me to keep going, grow, and help others.
Took the morning to volunteer at the Portland Open. We had the opportunity to walk 18 holes with amazing golfers at Witch Hollow at Pumpkin Ridge, being the standard bearers. We got our steps in (6.5 miles), made new friends, and mastered our golf clap! ⛳️
Have you seen a Frankincense tree before? My friends Kathy and Mark were enjoying this stunning tree and they even planted some Frankincense trees as well. This was taken a few years ago now but at least our company is in to sustainable practices with their harvesting and growing of our plant sources for our oils. These trees grow for hundreds of years and the oil comes from the tree resin. They have to be cut carefully and looked after so that the tree is not open to bacteria. #sustainablefarming#frankincense
If we were to marry the SAME EXACT person that we are, our marriages would be bland and boring. AS soon as we appreciate and CELEBRATE the differences between our gifts and our spouse's gifts, things go all the way up!

Hey everyone! My name is Doreshia and I am a 2nd semester ADN student. I have a previous BA degree in Dance. I am certified as Paramedic, but I am not currently practicing. I work full time during the day and I go to school in the evenings. I have two 7 week blocks this semester. Mental health for 7 weeks, one week off and then med surg for 7 weeks. Class 2x week and clinical 2x week. 😫 Its a lot, but I manage to find some balance in there somewhere. 😬 Continue reading for something’s I do to balance family, work, school and self-care.
🌟Schedule family time in advance. My schedule is really packed so it is important that I carve out time in advance to spend with loved ones. Sometimes I practice my skills so I feel less guilty about not studying. Everyone knows when they come over they get a full work up. Vitals, heart sounds, lung sounds, bowel sounds you name it. 😂 🌟Set aside time to do something physical. Go take that yoga class, ride a bike, take that dance class, whatever you do get moving and I’m sure you’ll feel refreshed and ready to tackle that to do list . 🌟Take time to wind down. Whether that is a glass of wine, lighting candles, bubble bath, Netflix or unplug from your electronics. Allow yourself time alone with your thoughts and indulge a bit. 🌟Those are a few things I do! How do you balance school/work/life?
It’s Friday afternoon, but I’m still powering through! When you start a business, sometimes it can feel like all you do is work. It’s easy to compare yourselves to others and think “I wish I had the weekend off”...but I can promise you that it gets easier. It won’t be so much work or so hard forever. It’s a temporary situation with a worthwhile gain 💕⠀

For a guy like me, NYC can be an overwhelming place. I see a correlation in that with my daily to do list. I’m working on several things at once and it can get so overwhelming that I shut down and get nothing done (paralysis by analysis). •
Like today. I left the house fuming in my head, frustrated beyond words, because I couldn’t get anything done. •
One of the things that helps me shift that dark space is taking a long walk, preferably in nature. In this case, Central Park. Works like a fucking charm. What helps you shift your space? #optoutside#fridaymood
I’ve been MIA lately because I’ve been working so hard. Thankful for the work & grateful for those who support me every step. Not only for their encouragement but for showing me the way to the door and teaching me to open them myself. Don’t be afraid of the effort it takes to do serious work. Meditate inside the work and be proud of your efforts. This weekend I’ll be finding that work/life balance at @barefootandfreeyoga following my Saturday classes @red_lotus_yoga (Troy)

Coordinating time to eat as a team isn't always easy - we get caught up in our work and we take lunch at different times. At #kerrisdalegroup , we schedule team meals to ensure we set aside time to eat together.
