The spring and summer of 2020 were some of the darkest times of my life, both personally and professionally. In this episode, I want to offer a bit more of myself and my journey with you:

  • My struggle with depression and anxiety
  • Professional burnout and lack of motivation
  • COVID and the disillusionment of offering solutions for schools when there aren’t any good ones
  • Where my train metaphorically derailed and I lost sight of the destination
  • The choice to cut out non-essential obligations and go offline in December
  • The response (and pushback) to my sabbatical announcement
  • Why I’ve never seen stepping away from work as a weakness (this wasn't the first or last time)
  • How I used my time offline in December
  • Why the sabbatical was not a cure-all, and coming back was harder than anticipated
  • The path back: finding the spark of inspiration and nurturing it into a roaring flame

Thank you for allowing me these weeks to heal, breathe, regroup, and clarify my vision for the year ahead.

Thank you for your messages, and for encouraging me even though I did not have the strength to encourage you.

Thank you for believing in me and my work. I may have taken a pause, but this work does not end. The next phase of our journey together is now underway.
