Hi Friends!

Over the past year, I have been working double time on my business and writing a dissertation. I'm not complaining because this is the life that I chose, but that doesn't take away the fact that I needed a break from both.

I chose to take some time away from business and academic endeavors because I felt emotionally drained and burned out. I wasn't good for anybody-not even myself.

I lost motivation. I was tired and frustrated. Part of my frustration was due to the enormous amount of work I put into my business and feeling like I didn't see any results. Also, I still had to work on my dissertation, which I felt was "getting in the way" of me building my business, resulting in some resentment.

I couldn't keep working like this and decided to take a hiatus and get back to the things that make me feel good! I lit some candles, watched some of my favorite shows, reduced my social media consumption, read some excellent books, and did things that I had been putting off because I was "too busy."

I am back, and I feel refreshed. I am taking things slower and giving myself room to breathe. My business and dissertation will be here regardless, so why not take a break?

I am passionate about emotional wellness and curating a safe space to feel what I feel without judgment and be kind to myself.

In closing, my wish for you is to take time for you. Go on a staycation, take a walk in the park, put on your favorite outfit, etc. Do things that bring you joy and feed your soul! Take a break and smell the roses.

Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk! I hope this message resonates with you.

Listen, working on a dissertation and building a business is no small feat, and it takes sacrifice. Over the past year, I have been managing these two major entities in my life and it is not easy.

So what does that have to do with candles, you ask?
