Flutter Isn't Everything

For those who have missed this newsletter the last few weeks, don't worry -- it wasn't you, it was me. :-)

Sometimes, personal business gets in the way of moving full steam ahead with a career, and in my case, taking time to deal with the loss of my mom last month set me back a bit, and it felt like the newsletter could take a back seat to other more pressing matters. (And in case you're wondering, my mom's passing wasn't completely unexpected, as she's been struggling with health challenges for a few years now, but it did come as a bit of a surprise when it finally happened.)

Losing someone close to me also reminded me that a career isn't everything. And if I look on the bright side, I found it rejuvenating to reconnect with my siblings and other family members around this event, and as I reflected to myself in this Twitter thread, what we leave behind can have a valuable impact on those who follow.

My wish for all of us is that we are able to find balance. Career (and Flutter!) are important, and I continue to pursue my interests in both of these. But taking time to enjoy our personal connections with loved ones is also important toward living a fulfilling life.
