Being on vacation for the past week, I’ve been able to do a lot of thinking, reading and reflection. Being able to get away and spend time with my family was so refreshing - and necessary! I love that my job is something I’m passionate about, but I still get tired and need a break. I love living in the city, but sometimes staying in one place for too long makes me stir crazy. Even just getting away for a weekend helps me so much.

During my time away, I read a book Kellyn gave me called "The Four Agreements." It is a great read for personal growth and self-love. One part of the book talks about always doing your best, but not tiring yourself out so much that you miss the point and forget to enjoy life. I love reading and this is the first book I’ve read on self- improvement and wisdom.

Taking time off is essential. I came back to the salon with fresh ideas and a clear mind, ready to do what I love! I hope you can find that peace and clearness too.
