After four years of work, I was given the gift of a three-week sabbatical. At first, I was excited about being gone, but that excitement turned to anxiety as my scheduled time away got closer. I had never taken this much time off at once and I didn’t really know how to act or respond to my time away. My time off was incredible and much needed, but during the three weeks, I experienced emotions I hadn’t prepared for. Have you ever had several wake-up calls in life hit you all at once? That’s what happened to me.
After talking out what I was going through with some good friends, it became clear that my sabbatical gave me 3 wake-up calls—wake-up calls in life I think we all need.
