I'm taking a break.
In recent weeks, multiple people including a few who I spoke to for the first time asked me “When was the last time you took a break?”
I’ve been working non-stop for as long as I can remember. Hustling while working at my job, hustling after quitting to start something. Hustling after selling my previous business SuperLemon.
In the last 3 years, the only time I took a real break, real as in disconnecting completely from work, was for the 10 days I went to Thailand with a few of my friends. That was just over 2 years ago.
So far, I had not experienced any detrimental effects that prompted me to think about taking a break. But I can clearly say that these last several months, it’s gotten to me.
I've written a short post talking about these detrimental effects I'm seeing in my life, why it's important that I see to them, and what my break looks like.
See you all in a few weeks ✌️
I’m leaving you with a few old posts that I’ve been reading. It feels odd yet refreshing to read my own writing and to rediscover old thoughts and ideas. It almost feels as if I’m reading someone else’s thoughts.
