Doing 5 beats a day for 3 summers...

Updated: Dec 6, 2018

...I deserve to do these numbers.

Work. Life. Balance.

Does anyones else get extremely overwhelmed in the best way possible. I'm usually not overwhelmed because I can't handle the projects I'm taking on, I'm overwhelmed that I'm getting projects that all fit in line with my career goals. It's just all happening at once :).

Blessings on blessings on blessings. 

I work odd hours and often times a lot of hours so here's the thing... sometimes you have to recharge regardless of others desire to consume your energy.

I feel terrible when I hype my friends up. Case and point.  

- "I wanna be Ratchet Ray tonight!"
- "We doing a walkthrough?"

I've even had the nerve to fake follow up: 

- "Real talk we linking up or nah?" 

Knowing good and damn well I was in my PJ's on my couch watching Viceland. Then it hit me. Ray you aren't going anywhere. I decided to wash dishes, start the grueling declutter process, and just rest. Like really rest. 

I actually grappled with the idea of going out and turning up with the homies. 

I'm happy I took care of me first. 

I never really appreciated self care nor understood how important 'me time' was until this year. As an extrovert I'm always on the go and giving pieces of myself and after a while that gets exhausting.

Some nights I didn't even make it working on my computer, lol, I fall asleep on the couch, laptop on attempting to do more work. I don't even get past the log in y'all. 

I am not Kevin Gates. I get tired. 

My point is...

Sleep, rest, recharge, take time to love you, there are 52 weekends in a year to live it up. Take a few to focus on yourself. These parties, people, events, whatever... it'll all be there. 

No one, I mean NO ONE, will love you like you love you. So love you first! 

Lets Ball Out
