Take a Break, Rest
So I received sad news yesterday. My day was going all fine and good till I received it. One of my old acquaintances I knew a while ago passed away.
This news hit me really hard and was almost surreal to me as this was a man I had come to like after several unplanned meetings.
I saw him everywhere, at public workspaces where I went to work, at tech meetups, blockchain meetups and even in the public library a few weeks ago. Peter had always looked healthy and great to me. So what on earth happened to my bro?. I later found out that his heart gave out, maybe due to stress or something underlying.
It then hit me, all the times i have seen Peter, he had always been working. At school, at the Library, and everywhere he was always on his PC working or talking about his next job/gig. He has previously even complained to a friend of mine that he gets stressed out a lot by work and he needs to take a break and rest.
As sad as this story is, most of all to me, I had to share it here to remind us to always remember to take a break from work and rest. Do whatever gives you peace, be it hang out with your friends at the club, a picnic, swimming, biking, traveling, name it. Do it. Prioritize your health first and don't compromise for any reason.
REST ON PETER. I HOPE YOU FIND THE REST YOU SEEK AS YOU LIVE ON IN OUR HEARTS
