If I had to choose one word to describe my relationship to work, it would have to be “workaholic.”
Yep, I’m straight up addicted.
As a business owner, I’ve always felt like I have to be “on” and “available” 24/7. If I’m not then my business would suffer, I’d let people down, and I wouldn’t be able to support my team.
So I work. All. The. Time.
The last time I took a vacation was six years ago with my boyfriend at the time’s family. I brought my laptop and would freak out if I couldn’t connect to wifi on a tropical island- wasn’t much of a vacation.
This year I decided things would be different. I was exhausted and tired of “wishing” for things that weren’t difficult to make a reality.
My annual vision boards ALWAYS had Paris on them, but I had previously made zero effort to get there.
So I put my foot down, picked a date, and asked my high school best friend to accompany me.
My friends, I just got back from Paris, and it was INCREDIBLE!!!
Did I bring my laptop? Yes.
Did my laptop break on the trip making it so I couldn’t use it? Yes.
Did I work on this trip? Not really (okay I may have vlogged, got inspired, and made some Instagram stories – but that’s it!!)
I am officially in love with Paris, I am drinking the “take time for yourself” Koolaid, and am making travel a regular thing for me.
