After a personal health scare and then losing my father unexpectedly in 2013, I kept daydreaming about what it would be like to live my life more purposefully. As the year went on, my daydreaming turned more practical and I had a chance to save up and fund my own “life sabbatical.”
So on June 1, 2015, I left my cushy exec job where I’d been for 8 years and committed to spend a year taking new chances. “Leap and a net will appear,” said John Borroughs – so this space is meant to capture the nets and journeys in this next year.
Since that time, this previously overworked, always plugged-in, over-scheduled gal is learning to go a little slower, live a little more, and be open to new roads for a more years of life.
