A word to the wise.. I believe that once you've built a comfortable bankroll/networth/nestegg/etc and have embraced poker as your main source of income, it's incredibly important to make life decisions based on +lifeEV and not +$EV. That's not to say that $ doesn't affect life, but its only one factor and you should genuinely ask yourself just how realistically important it is to you when making decisions like whether to go away for 3 months etc.. In my experience, people (not just poker players) that make every decision based purely on financial grounds are almost always unhealthy (mentally and physically) and subsequently, miserable. I think this minor distinction is integral to leading a "fulfilling" life if you've chosen the poker path.
