After 6 years and more than 500 posts I’m taking a break.
It’s time for me to recharge the batteries, repot the plant, hit the reset button or whatever cliche floats your boat.
For the next several months I’m putting the kibosh on taking on new consulting gigs and generally saying “no” to anything that can be deemed “corporate.”
I’ve begun looking at everything I do–and own–and asking whether it truly gives me joy. It’s leading to a lot of decluttering. I feel lighter already.
I’ve also begun tapping into the power of ‘no’ and the power of ‘now.’ I feel more than a wee bit liberated.
On the other hand, I will be saying ‘yes’ to more travel, to expanding my knowledge of the crazy world we live in, to cultivating maitri and to advancing my work in the social impact space.
It’s fun and energizing. It’s also a little bit scary. Of course that is the nature of anything really worth doing.
So fair warning: if you feel like I’m ignoring you it’s pretty likely to be true. But it’s not personal. Trust me, it will be fine.
Some people that I’ve told of my plans have looked at me like a confused german shepherd. To them I say, well, maybe I’m crazy. But after all, it’s not about you.
Others have said “I’m so jealous, I wish I could do that.” To them I say, well, what’s stopping you?
Anyway, thanks for giving me the gift of your attention. It means a lot.
See you in another life brothers and sisters.
