The hardest part I feel like about all of this hustle and paying down my debt is finding balance. I want to (most of the time) keep my head down and keep working 7 days a week until I'm back at a balance of zero, but if it were to all be over tomorrow is that really any way to live?
I feel like it's really crucial; whether you're in a relationship working towards something or just trying to achieve a goal on your own, to be kind to yourself.
Two things that truly make me feel blissful are sitting down and drinking a cup of tea in a new place, and having a long conversation with Ryan about important and exciting things.
I guess I'm posting this because a lot of my previous posts are about minimalism and being frugal and working hard, but prior to having to take off for Ryan's sister's wedding I was working nonstop. I mean literally I was working 7 days a week, and i opted for it. Even my boss was concerned.
Needless to say if i hadn't taken off for the wedding (which was non-negotiable) I probably would have run myself, my relationship, and everything else into the ground.
Be your own friend. It's okay to take $30 bucks and go have lunch, or do something you enjoy with someone who loves you. In the end it's not going to make or break you.
It's about stopping, taking time to breathe, and then getting back to work. And it's not an easy thing to do, but I encourage you to do it because I love you and I understand. 💛
Life is short. Handle your shit, but remember to enjoy it and the people who make it so great. Money should never get in the way of that.
P.S. This place was soooooo fucking good. Crepes Tea House in West Springfield, MA.
