Happy March. Happy winter is almost over. Happy everything.
You’ve probably noticed that the blog has been a little quiet lately. Okay, super quiet. Yeah, I’ve been utterly overwhelmed with work. What happened was that last year I picked up some freelance work (a lot of it), and then I ended up getting a great job as a writer and editor. So I wound up working like a dog dealing with both of those, plus my own writing, and didn’t have time to blog or to further what I wanted to do with this site. The plan all along was to do this part time, as a way of sharing my journey through life and helping others along the way.
But now I see that I can’t do all that. It’s too much. If I’m going to stay sane and remain true to my values, I have to cut back, which means no more blogs or books for a while. I’ll still be coaching.
Fortunately, there are plenty of great websites and experts out there who devote full time to this sort of thing. Dr. Axe and MindBodyGreen for natural health and wellness, Deepak Chopra and the Chopra Institute for meditation and spirituality, John Gottman and the Gottman Institute for relationship and marital health, Martha Beck for personal growth and finding what you want in life, PsychCentral and Psychology Today for mental health, just to name a few.
It’s been great hanging with you all, especially those of you who’ve been around since the beginning (you know who you are). I can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed getting to know you, and I appreciate your being here and your support.
I don’t know when or even if I’ll come back to write on this site. It will remain here, with tons of content for anyone to read and comment on. But the universe is calling me elsewhere, and I’ve learned to listen to that calling. It’s also telling me to stop trying to do everything, so I’m going to do my best to quit being stubborn and listen.
I’m still around, at my sci-fi Twitter account (@5280_scifi) and on Facebook, and I’m here if you need coaching. Stay in touch.
Take care of yourselves and be well.
