Tomorrow marks a significant milestone: our first vacation since 2019. But this isn't just any vacation—it's our first as a family. The last time I took a break, I was a different person. I was single, not yet a father, and unfamiliar with the profound depths of unconditional love. The landscape of my life has shifted dramatically since then, making this getaway not just a luxury, but a necessity.
Juggling the roles of Executive Director, musician, husband, and father is akin to spinning plates—each one demanding constant attention to keep it from crashing down. From the moment my eyes flutter open in the morning to the instant I surrender to sleep, the weight of these responsibilities is ever-present. It's exhilarating, exhausting, and everything in between. Parents reading this, I know you get it.
So, what's the destination for this much-needed respite? Dubai. I can't express how much I'm looking forward to simply sitting still, a luxury that's become increasingly rare in my whirlwind life.
In this fast-paced world, it's crucial to carve out moments of stillness. Whether you're globe-trotting to an exotic locale or simply enjoying a quiet evening at home, take the time to pause. Reflect. Recharge. Your future self will thank you.
