We hear hundreds of stories of millennial burnout — but what does it take to rebuild your life after burnout? This memoir by Kay Fabella tells the story of her journey of self-discovery after experiencing burnout at age 22.
Just when Kay Fabella was beginning to feel that she’d found her path to success―graduating from college in 3 years, a paying job in the midst of a recession, and a bright future ahead―she was diagnosed with clinical depression. A lifelong overachiever who started reading at age 2, graduated high school at 16, and college at 19, burnout forced Kay to re-evaluate her own definition of success. She then began a journey of healing to stay away from meds and hospitals. Along the way, Kay discovered how to create a life that was aligned with who she was―eventually leading her to Spain.
Rewrite Your Story chronicles one millennial’s recovery from burnout, but it is also the story of the fulfillment that is possible for any of us when we begin to ask what success looks like on our terms. It’s a refreshingly entertaining memoir-meets-how-to-guide for anyone who’s ready to recover from burnout, reclaim who they are and rewrite the story of their life.
This book serves up 26 bite-sized chapters of Kay’s stories as both a daughter of immigrants and an immigrant herself, words of wisdom, easy exercises, and the occasional lyric ranging from Outkast to Frozen, helping you to:
- Identify what’s stopping you from living a life on your terms
- Cultivate practices to help you recover from burnout
- Tune into who you are to discover your passion and purpose
By the end of Rewrite Your Story, you’ll understand what got you here, how to change what you don’t love, how to determine the truest version of who you are, and how to love yourself as you evolve into the person you were meant to be.
