“Do you ever take a day off?”
I had just finished sending off a hefty email to a client when that text came in from my boyfriend. ‘Of course, I do’, I thought. I take breaks all the time! Yet in the back of my mind, I knew that answer was way off. Since I started freelancing, I hadn’t taken a single day off–I always found a way to get some work done. I couldn’t remember the last time I had a full night’s rest, or when I had done something spontaneous with friends without it being planned.
