Vacation is hard
I am going on vacation!! Seriously, I am.
I haven't been on a proper vacation in over two years. There are lots of good reasons for that: having a kid, having another kid, COVID-19, starting a business, etc. But this has been a loooooong time coming.
I have a tough time going on vacation. I have a tough time stepping back from work and trying to relax. People need me and I try to be there for them. It is so easy to just work and work and work because the need is neverending.
But then I realized: the work is neverending.
I can never finish what Im doing. It is my life's calling and my lifelong work. My job will be waiting for my when I return.
Since the work never ends, I have to take care of myself so I can be here as the work continues. I deserve it. I need it.
So take it from me, your friendly #drmatt and take some time off.
I'll see you on the other side
