Every Day I’m (kinda) Hustlin’

We try to fill our days with work and other things to make it seem like we’re crushing it but let’s face it, we’re not Gary Vee.

I get it, you’re hustling and that’s cool but don’t kill yourself over it. The last eight or so months have been stressful for me because I ran myself into the ground juggling my work life, personal life, and side projects.

It really fucked my body up, physically and mentally. I didn’t make any time for myself or my friends and family. A lot of my relationships suffered along with the relationship with myself, my well being. I was moody and didn’t enjoy doing a lot of things anymore.

We talk about multitasking, working late and working on the weekends like it’s a badge of honor. Like it will impress our friends but I know now that none of that shit matters if your brain is fried. It could be that I’m not able to handle the stress and if that’s the case, then FUCK it. People can still be successful without risking their mental and physical health.
