WE ALL NEED A BREAK
“We all need a break, but rather have a breakthrough”. I was thinking about the meaning of this quote for the last couple of days. We all follow our dreams and we all try to give our best to achieve them. But sometimes what we really need is a break. A break that we are afraid to take because we are all fighting for our breakthrough.
I’ve been in this situation and always thought that needing a break from work and everything else is just a sign of weakness. The truth is. It’s not. If I need a break, I can tell that it is a well deserved one because I gave my all. I gave a 100% and I am not able to maintain this level without taking this little break. We all have a goal and we won’t stop at nothing to achieve them. But is it okay to go that far, that we are almost selling our souls for it? I’m sick of this “your wish is my command”-society and I am opposing it. Even if I start with the little things. Selling our souls already begins by changing our appearance against our will. The perfect business dress and heels for appointments from monday to friday, even if you’re not that kinda person and would usually run around with ripped jeans and a oversized shirt, shorts and flip flops. I’m not even talking about myself right now because everyone knows that I love me some good pair of heels and I also have a weakness for a slight business touch in my everyday looks. But how about we stay true to ourselves again and convince people with our know-how and ambition? My life will change in a few weeks again. And I’m starting to take a break from everything by finally being able to go on a vacation and taking a week off. I also ditched my heels this weekend and went for my slip-ons and went for a laid back leather-vest instead of a blazer – just to get a different feeling that is far from what I do for living. A laid-back look. A laid-back me.
