A year off work is a gift and a luxury.
Think how I’d feel if the year had passed and all I had to show for it was a clean house and being caught up on Netflix. I’m cognizant not to fritter away this precious time.
The rtw trip is clearly a large part of the gift of a year, however I have 3-1/2 months before lift off. My goals:
- Family & friend connection
- Digital detox (yeah, I’m not quite sure how to write a blog AND have a digital detox)
- Creative recovery…
…you can be in business and be creative and I’ve been lucky that most of my corporate roles have been about building from scratch or rebuilding…creativity abound. However if you’re an “all-in” type of person, you can’t give it to work and give it outside of work. It’s now time for my OWN creative recovery. What does this look like? Writing morning pages (3 hand-written semi-conscious pages every morning); walking, running or hiking in nature every day; and…prepare yourselves…Bollywood dance class. Yes, really.
I can feel these simple steps…already applied…opening up my core. And it feels …amazing.
