  1. Hahaha, thanks for the special shoutout! You know me way to well!

  2. I read the compassion fatigue one the other day and I could relate to that SO much. Caring about everyone and everything is literally wearing me down but I feel like a bad person if I don’t care or I don’t try to help. It’s so draining.

  3. These links are so good! Thanks San!

  4. Oh gosh, the things the younger generation won’t understand was such a nostalgic read! Things were so different when we were kids!!

    We are having our friends over for pumpkin carving on Saturday and I”m making that detox lentil soup as the woman in the couple is a vegetarian! So it was cool to see it on your recipe links! What are the chances we both looked at that recipe this week?? Great minds think alike. :)

  5. Compassion fatigue / burnout is a big discussion among me and some of my friends who work in my space. I really struggle with it because it’s such a luxury to be able to check in and out of the realities of what our students and families are facing – so I feel like I’m constantly struggling with the feeling of urgency vs. taking care of myself. Thanks for continuing to bring attention to it though – I don’t think enough people recognize that people in caregiving roles can burn out just as much, if not moreso, than other people… and sometimes when they do, it means they leave their career as a whole, resulting in less people to care for everyone else. <3

    1. Ugh, I can imagine that compassion fatigue/burnout is especially prominent in your field, when you’re dealing with students and just trying to help EVERYONE. I am sorry.

  6. Always love these posts – thanks for sharing! I particularly like the nostalgia-related links… oh, the things my nieces will never know!

    Figuring out how to make that lentil soup without a crockpot. Hmmm….
