The Downside of every upside

Boarding for flight – Sydney to Dublin.

Yes I just got home (for 48 hours) from Japan.

Being on the road is not always glamorous. Is it privilege and an amazing experience – absolutely. But we must remember in every great experience – there is a sacrifice that comes along with it. This ONE downside hurts every time I leave. I wish it only affects me – but it doesn’t.

But it is what it is. Knowing the downside of every upside keeps us balance. It serves us to remind ourselves of this.
