On Staying


If you could get on a plane tomorrow, with no commitments to work around, no budget to confine you, where would you go? ✈️ 🗺 Whatever is keeping you from going, is it worth missing out on the world? 

We stay because we work. We work to support ourselves, to support others, to feed ourselves, to allow ourselves to enjoy things and have a life. Reality check: we miss out on life to keep working. Funny, the way it is.

Maybe we stay because our work brings us so much joy that it doesn’t feel like work. Or maybe we stay because we have to be selfless. But if we are only ever selfless, there is nothing of our self left to give. Honor your need for joy; it will benefit everyone around you. Be selfish. Honor yourself. Even just a little. Every day.
