The Dog Days of Summer

The Dog Days of Summer

That just conjures up a picture of a big old dog laying lazily across the front porch on a hot sunny day!

Taking time off is something that I have always struggled with.  I love what I do, and I love the team I work with…. and it is so important to take time to be still.

Ken and I just spent two weeks traveling together, visiting some friends we haven’t seen in a while, going to wineries, walking on the beach and taking in a professional ball game.

Each experience was wonderful.

I found the more I relaxed, the quieter my mind got.  As my mind took a break, a sense of clarity and pure joy entered.

Coming back into my everyday was smooth, even in the face of all that had waited for me.

When was the last time you gave yourself the gift of being still?

As leaders who are called to make an impact on the world through our work, it is especially important to take these times.  For many years I did not, and I became very tired and did not experience joy to its fullest potential.

So from this space of joy, I want to say Thank You for being a part of our community.

I want to let you know how much I appreciate you and the work you are doing.  And I want to encourage you to take time and be still.

In Abundance,
