Out of Office

Out of Office

Hi, Friends,
 
15 years ago I started my first business, that eventually evolved into The Well Dressed Life.
 
I’m incredibly grateful for everything that decision has afforded me over the years.
 
But one thing I haven’t been able to iron out is the elusive “work life balance.”
 
I am plugged in all the time, which seems silly because I’m not delivering babies.
 
It is, however my livelihood. The nature of the business is brutal, and it takes a toll after a while. On me and my family.
 
This week, I’m doing something I haven’t done in forever: go on vacation with my family and turn off all my devices.
 
That means no social media, no emails, and no work for seven glorious days.
 
This is a big step for me. I had to give myself permission to take a pause and work through the anxiety that brings up.
 
This business, and the wild way the industry is evolving, don’t give you much breathing room.
 
But I looked at my kids the other day and realized that all this hard work isn’t worth it if I’m not present when we’re all together, and a week off shouldn’t be the end of the world.
 
Somehow, I’m only two short summers away from our first college move-in day. (insert sobbing emoji)
 
So I’ll be back on Monday, August 15th, with our regularly scheduled content.
 
Have a wonderful week, and I’ll “see” you soon!
xx, Meg

Time spent with your family is the most important investment you can make. Enjoy your vacation! We love all you do and will still be here when you plug back in.
