Give Yourself a Break

"Resting is immensely powerful to ignite the glorious star within you. Power yourself by powering up your relaxing game." ― Hiral Nagda

Taking some time for yourself is essential if you want to be at the peak of creativity and productivity. Just like in this serene piece created for Aspettando Mondi Incantati 2022 by Alessia H. Valastro.

Don’t be afraid to take a break. You deserve one, and you most certainly need one. Especially if you feel overwhelmed.

I needed one from this newsletter, as I felt overwhelmed with everything I had on my plate. Work, family, stress, and uncertainty regarding COVID started to pile up and get the best of me.

I thought it would be a couple of weeks, but I ended up taking more than a year. I felt guilty about it for a while, but I realized I’m not doing myself (or you) a service, as the content would be rushed, subpar, and underwhelming.

I want you to enjoy reading this newsletter. The goal is to encourage you to expand your horizons and help you grow as a person. And I want to practice what I preach—that’s why I had to take a break.

Lately, I’ve been getting the itch to start writing again, sharing my experience, what I’ve learned, what I’ve tried, what has worked, was hasn’t—so here I am again, starting from scratch. Almost.

If you need a break, take one. You deserve one, and you don’t have to feel guilty about taking one.
