In January, I announced my sabbatical, promising I’d be back to do cards in 6 months. I’m here! I’m going to do cards for your Summer guidance, but…I’m going to go right back into sabbatical after that.
I wasn’t expecting to need so much recovery time. I wasn’t expecting to get sicker before I started feeling better (I am, slowly, feeling better in some ways). I wasn’t expecting family life/needs to completely take over all of my time and energy as soon as I had the time and energy to commit to it. I wasn’t expecting to not be able to do any WGG work whatsoever!
The last 6 months have forced me to heed my own intentions of rest in a radical way.
I think that my sabbatical had to sneak its way in with a promise of 6 months, so that I would even consider it. I don’t think I would have allowed myself to consider an entire year away from this work that I love. It’s humbling to have to change plans and expectations. It’s hard to afford myself grace and risk disappointing my beloved clients. My work lately has been to turn my helping and healing inward; forcing myself to partake first of the gifts that are so easily given to others. Only when I am offering from the overflow of health and abundance is the work I do at its best.
And I’m not done resting and healing yet. I’m certainly not in a place where I can go back to working WGG – especially right as my three kids are getting out of school for the summer! Family needs are going to be higher for the next 3 months; I can’t shuffle them to the back burner right now.
So, I’m poking out of my hibernation hole to do a little work for your Summer guidance, and then I’ll keep playing this sabbatical thing by
In June, I have a limited time offer that I want to extend right now. It feels so right to do this – my heart is full and bursting for this exchange!
