Time off
Time out

Last year I took recess. Like a kid who’s had rainy-day-schedule for 100 days, cooped up in the classroom, and at the sound of the bell blows a top and goes running around the playground screaming I’m free! I’m free!

This year I’m taking sabbatical. It’s about deepening, appreciating, insight, making space, and being out in the world rather than under the covers. It feels more mature. Less I have to or I will die; more I want to for my quality of life.

I’m still completely giddy. And so appreciative.

Thank you day one!

    Yes, it’s about quality of life. I hope you are getting lots of goodness out of your month. As a teacher, I understand the need fir a break to enable you to return to teaching with a full heart and refreshed spirit. Xo
