Being with your family and close friends is not always what you are able to do. You need to take risks, make moves, shake the ground, slay the thunder from the sky, act big, eat healthy, explore possibilities, jump off cliffs, train intensely, fail like you never did before, make love, share stories, learn what interests you, help others and be free. You need to protect your time, your money, your body, your mind, and your positivity. You need to live free to be free. Since you have put in the work, you now have earned the time to be present with your family and close friends. These are glory days.
