    Thank goodness you got the wake-up call to slow down when you did! I struggle with slowing down and taking breaks as well, but it’s crucial to remember that your health is priority #1, and that everything else comes after. And you’re totally right: if you slow down and take a break, the people that truly support you will still be there for you.

      Aw, thank you so much. I really appreciate it and yes, everything is lesson to learn from and I most definitely learned something during this experience. And I’m happy to just take my time and enjoy the moment …

    Stacey! This is gold!
    I love how transparent you were because a lot of us bloggers go through the same thing. We tire ourselves out without noticing until we crash. We over consume our minds with social media marketing, writing blog post, scheduling post, engaging.. and more!

    But I’m so happy you were able to speak up for us. We need breaks too! It’s ok!

    Thank you for writing this for me, for us!
    Love you so much sister 💕🌻

      I love you toooooo sister 😘😘. And ohhh my gosh, yes. It’s not easy, and it’s like you don’t even know if you need a break or not but, nope – we all need a break from all the hard work that we’re doing and there’s nothing wrong with that. I agree everything you’ve said cause being a blogger isn’t easy but, well worth it. Thank you sis , always appreciate you. And you’re very welcome – I am not just writing for myself, it’s for all of us 😘😘.

      Xoxo,

    😊 I love you so much sis! You are creating your own journey and path to success. I’m
    almost scared to say great job now 👀😂😂. It’s funny how our plans get interrupted to teach us lessons. But the fact that you came back with this fire 🔥🔥🔥 shows your growth and commitment level. Always be you because you’re truly amazing ❤️

    I definitely feel like this now! My job has taken on some very new expectations and it has become quite overbearing. I’m kind of where you were; staying up crazy hours working myself to the bone just to make sure I meet those expectations and it’s taking a toll, smh! Sometimes you have to take a mental break from all things before you drive yourself crazy. For me, it actually helps if I take a break from my 8-5 job and focus more on my writing/blogging because those are the things I enjoy and it gives me an escape from reality. Luckily I have some time off coming up and I cannot WAIT to get away for a few days and not think about my job, lol!

    I’m glad you were able to take the much needed time and give yourself some much needed self-care! ☺️

      Yes! Taken mental break is very important. It doesn’t matter what you’re doing in life. You need to take breaks. Writing is my escape away too, during my break I would write whatever and about anything came to mind lol …. thank you for reading, I really appreciate it and I hope you enjoy your getaway from work cause trust me I know that feeling lol 😘

      Much love,
