In addition to David's suggestions, I suggest that you also have a health check-up - you could be run-down from working long hours/handling stressful situations, etc. Your doctor can let you know if you know if you are depleting your resources. You may be burning out. Make sure your physical health is good. Fatigue can cause you to feel disengaged.
Typically, women are very good at looking after and helping others, but do not do such a good job for themselves.
Your profile says you handle Recreational Activities (in addition to your other duties) - Am I correct that this is to make sure employees are having some "fun"?

I realized then that I as much as I loved my work, I needed to add balance or I would burn out.

They want to work wherever they can work. They want a ton of freedom. They want to change jobs every six months, so we’re very aggressive about pushing people around to different jobs. They care less about money and more about learning. We want there to be a certain percentage of the company that moves every three months between departments and does new jobs. One of the things I track is what percentage of the company changed jobs in the last three months. If that’s flattening out, I get worried because I know these Gen Y’ers will leave if they’re not moving around.
