The Hit List - A pause before change

I’m taking a little time off. Not a lot, mind you. Only a pause.  

It’s partly because I’m attending a conference and teaching out of town, which often leads to a wee bit of downtime here and there. It’s a sacred pause in my crazy-busy life. Plus, I’m rethinking my work and how I want to operate in the future. This break will give me a moment or two to ponder all of that.

And oh, life is about to get chaotic again. I have a new book dropping on Monday. (You might have been hearing me talking about that. A lot.) I’m also prepping classes for an amazing Italian retreat. I’ve also got a few new top-secret projects brewing.

So this time-out will prep me for what’s to come – and the changes I want to make.

That also means: I’ll be blogging and podcasting way less this week. Don’t worry – I’m not abandoning anything. I’ll be back on track after the 8th. 

Until then, keep shuffling – and don’t forget to make time for yourself too, m’kay?
