I believe with all my heart that I am an optimist. While challenges continue to present themselves in my life, and while it is sometimes difficult and I have 'lower' moments, I always keep moving forward.
There are times though that I take retreat and pull back and my friends, that time is coming soon again... When I leave for my trip next Friday - February 8th, I will be taking a SP hiatus as well. I will not be logging on, I will not be spinning the wheel (wow - that's HUGE for me as I received consistency awards for every month last year), and I will not be blogging. I am also going to be taking a break for ALL social 'online' things... facebook, and yes - even the online dating scene which I rejoined a couple of months ago.
What I will be doing is taking a bit of a retreat. I will be bringing a writing journal with me on my trip and will revert to the old fashioned daily journal - to log my thoughts, feelings and observations. I feel I need to do this for many reasons... but most of all just to gain a new perspective and come back refreshed, renewed and ready to keep moving ahead with the journey.
So for those who read my blogs regularly - do not worry... I will be back but will be on hiatus from February 8th to February 17th - enjoying every moment of my vacation/getaway.
I will make the most of the 8 days left before my trip ... still not up for exercising and now battling headaches as part of this lingering bug I guess, or perhaps the crazy shift in our weather from cold to warmer to cold again.
Challenges will continue to present themselves in our lives, it's what we do with them that make a difference and sometimes, YES, it's ok to just take a break from it all!
