unmaking a life

.unmaking a life6

 

Some of you know I’ve been dealing with some health issues for several months.  I’ve  really been struggling with returning to work and mostly, not dealing well with the pressures that come with being the boss. At all. Day by day, I’ve been losing all the ground I had taken in getting stronger, and started going backwards, fast. So I made a really (really) difficult decision to leave. I’ve been there for more than 20 years. I’ve moved across the country more than once, worked with thousands of people… and just like that, in about 3 more weeks, it’s over. I don’t have a safety net. Starting over with a clean slate is a great twist in a Hallmark movie. In real life – it’s pretty damn daunting.

But I’ll get healthier, and stronger – and that’s really good.
And I’m moving back home, to be with my guy and my bonus daughter – and that’s even better.

There’s a lot of life and living to create. But first, I’m unmaking 20+ years of this life.

Wish me luck.
