I am guilty of it. I’m guilty of retreating into myself when I’m dealing with stuff or there’s a lot on my plate and I feel like I’m being pulled in every direction. It’s easy. It’s easy to hide behind the distractions, the excuses, the extended deadlines, the Instagram reels. And there’s nothing wrong with pressing pause when you need a breather. I’ve discovered over my side hustling journey that I needed more breathers than I realized. And that’s okay. I’m human. I have issues and human responses to those issues.
But even if in the midst of my breathers, I know I need to come back. I need to remember what my work and time is going toward. I got a goal. I got a few of them, actually. And I need to get back to it. It’s time to roll up my sleeves and get back to building the dream and laying its foundation. The journey has memories but I can only imagine what that destination looks like. I’m ready for the next chapter. It’s gonna be some work to it. And that too is okay. I’m ready. So, let’s get to it.
