Having written my last post on March 15th, I had no idea more than two months would pass before I returned to the blogosphere. This was not an intentional hiatus. It was, in hindsight, a valuable break.
I had the good sense to pause and realize I had stretched myself too thinly across several fronts. I found that I had agreed (with myself) to take on too many concurrent activities and commit to too many deliverables. Some were professionally related; others were personal initiatives. Yet each was worthwhile.
It was, however, time well spent. I did some traveling (which I love), rekindled in-person a lifelong friendship, scrambled to fulfill my Awakening to Awareness radio show obligations, and created private time to deeply reflect and in doing so – realign with what really matters to me. I attended professional conferences, met and befriended some fascinating people, came very close to earning the privilege to travel to and speak in Kuala Lumpur and most importantly, regrounded myself. It was and is all good. It just required giving myself permission to revisit priorities and refresh clarity around my purpose.
I genuinely missed my WordPress community and the connections that have grown out of blogging. I missed reading your creative, inspiring and humorous words. Now I look forward to resuming our mutual sharing of amazing ideas and experiences though my contributions will flow more gradually.
I hope you who read this blog are well and thriving. It’s good to be returning. 🙂
