I have a confession. Things have been kind of rocky for me lately. Things have gotten waaaay out of balance and the result is that I’ve been out-of-sorts for quite a while.
I love what I do. I’m proud of the work that I’ve been doing here on the Journal and out in the world. The problem is that I’m not so proud of the person I’ve been being in order to produce that work.
A clear sign of impending trouble is when I go to sleep with the television on – I know that this is a symptom of things rumbling under the surface (and being ignored). I’ve been going to sleep with the TV for over two months…and trying to convince myself that it’s not really a big deal.
It has come roaring into my awareness over the last week that I haven’t been taking very good care of many aspects of my well-being: I haven’t been eating well; I haven’t been exercising; I haven’t been sleeping well; I haven’t been fully engaging in my spiritual practice.
Last weekend I got to see my dear friend Karen and, like any good friend, she got really real with me. “Who would you be if you weren’t doing this work?” she asked me.
All systems stopped as I realized that the answer in this moment is… I don’t know. I’ve lost track.
Until I can come back into a state of balance – and remember the answer to that question – I need to take some time off.
I have decided to take the next three months off from being “Miracle Leah” in order to rest, re-align, and rejuvenate. I have a few radio show bookings and other small things to finish up in the next few weeks, but other than that I’m taking a vacation. It’s time to just be “Leah” again for a while.
What does this mean for you? First, it means you should sign up for the newsletter (in the bar above) so you’re notified when I get back online.
I won’t be accepting any new coaching appointments until approximately February 2014. If you want to be notified when I re-open my coaching schedule, send me a note and I’ll be happy to do that.
I am so grateful to all of you who show up here, and I’m even more grateful because as I write this I can already imagine the messages of support that you’ll be sending me.
I love you and I look forward to talking with you again sometime early next year.
Until then, know that YOU are the miracle.
