"Leap and the net will appear"



It has been a long time. Apparently I'm not very good at this blogging thing, but alas I can only write when I have something to say...

2012 was an extremely challenging year. Life came at me so quickly that I've only now begun to process what really happened and what I accomplished. I felt like I barely had time to breathe. One challenge after the other arose and each one took an extraordinary amount of patience and fortitude to overcome. I became spent-- balance has always been challenging for me. I throw myself into my work and I don't look up till it is over. With the convenience of retrospect, I can now say that last year was a crucible year. 

So for 2013, I took the first month or so to do very little. I wish I could say it was just so that I could be sure of where I wanted to go over the next 11 months, but it was simply because my body (my brain) wasn't going to cooperate with me any longer if I didn't stop.  All the warning signs were blazing pretty much since September. So, the only thing I did was work with my kids from OTT two days a week. In the end, it turned out to be just what I needed.

It was hard making that decision. Financially it was crazy, but I'm glad I did because I am beginning to find my inner most strength again- something that was quite bruised and battered for a while now.  I'm still not super clear on all of the details (I never am), but one thing I know for sure is I am embracing CHANGE and lots of TRAVEL for 2013. 

Things accomplished so far: 
  • Trip to NYC & Michigan, with two more trips scheduled thus far. 
  • Return to child-like abandon- did two cart-wheels, just for the fun of it! 
  • Made two really hard decisions personally and financially based on what's best for my health and well-being first, rather than spreading myself so thin for everyone or everything else.
