This post really resonated with me, and hits at my feeling of needing an extended break to just kinda collect myself and get my feet back under me. My family has been through multiple rounds of crazy shit and it’s definitely had an impact on all aspects of my life, including work. I really love my work; I love my collaborators and doing great work for great clients. I haven’t been able to be fully present because I’m continuing to deal with the ripple effects of a whole lotta life that’s happened over the past number of years.

I’m planning on taking some time off this summer and am planning on taking a longer stretch off in 2023. I’m hoping those stretches of time will help me collect myself so that I can be my best self for my family, my friends, and my work.
