My life has become a big blur of work. Fashion styling has erupted in the last couple of months with my clients having massive projects and campaigns going on. I must say I never thought that styling would bless me with the things that it has – I’ve made new friends, family even! I’ve learned a lot about my limits and I’ve developed so many new skills. One thing I didn’t know when deciding on embarking on this Melissa-takes-the-world journey is how poor of a work-life balance I would have. I AM ALWAYS WORKING. It never stops. I’ve missed out on so many big things that have happened in the lives of loved ones because amazing opportunities have come up for me and as much as I feel bad, I always remind myself that you can have it all but not all of the time.
To have something you really want you may have to sacrifice something that you really need to get it. In my case, my want is a great career and my need is sleep, proper food and time off. I kept on telling myself that I need to push through to the finishing line but last week, my body decided enough is enough and I have a bit of a burnout.
