It is important to takes break in life. To reflect on what something or someone provides you and if it really is as good as you believe it is.
It can be easy to justify taking the easy route, grabbing a beer and relaxing after a hard day of work seems like not only a priviledge, but a right. Why do we see it as so?
I am challenging myself to not try on external needs to bring me my happiness. I do not look forward or need something to have a good time and am challenging myself when I feel a good time cannot by had without x, y or z.
Congratulations on your journey, I hope you make some momentous realizations.
