LEFT - At Sisu Boutique club, Marbella in 2014. Mega-anxious about being away from my work. Drinking more to cope. Kept it all to myself.
RIGHT - At a music bar in the Algarve. 100% relaxed inside and out. Giving myself permission to enjoy my time and still integrated with my work.
Just a quick word on balance guys. We are an incredibly ambitious, driven and hard-working generation. This also means many of us put heeeeeaps of pressure on ourselves, become highly self-critical, and don't relax and recharge properly 👎🏻 That was me. Focusing unhealthily on one thing: work. For you it could be the gym, your love life, or your kids.
I LOVE my work and where we are heading thanks to your support. And I love it enough to know when I need to step back and focus on other things, completely uninterrupted. We can not be defined by just our work! Or one thing for that matter. Our identity is so much more than one thing, and I have seen so many people put all there eggs in one basket and then get bitten ❌ Like me in 2014, we miss out on life happening RIGHT NOW!
So integrate all aspects of your life towards what you value, what you are natural at, and where you get the most enjoyment. When I can be out talking about the nature of people, with an unbelievably delicious gin in my hand, whilst crying with laughter with people I love, that for me is BALANCE. 💡#Balance
