Hiatus – A Time for Change
If you can believe it, I started writing this blog post on December 23rd, 2016 with various revisions and iterations taking place between then and now. I’ve known since December 23rd (actually, way before that) that this blog post was inevitable; however, pushing the “publish” button scared the living crap out of me. I was scared of what people would think and how people would react. Would I disappoint people? Would they no longer view me as “successful”?
Fast forward to today, I finally have the self-love, confidence, and compassion for myself to do what I’ve been dying to do for months. I’m taking a hiatus from Edelweiss and freelance until further notice. I will finish out the projects that I have with existing clients and will not be taking on any more projects.
Phew. Now that’s over.
I understand that this literally makes no sense. I had my most “successful” year-to-date generating the most revenue and working with the most clients I’ve ever had. I even re-branded my company in an effort to continue to grow my business. What you didn’t see (that only those closest to me have witnessed) is how exhausted I’ve been, how stressed I am and the decline in my health. I stopped taking care of myself and I’ve put everything and everyone else first. The most ridiculous part of this whole thing is, is that it took painting table numbers, on the day of a wedding, in the back of my car, in a Michael’s parking lot to make me realize that this shit needed to come to a grinding halt – ASAP (pardon my language).
I want to thank all of you who have supported me and my business over the past 8 years. This is not goodbye forever, just for now. Just long enough for me to focus on my new role as Recruitment Marketing Manager at Bell, get through the pile of books I have waiting for me on my nightstand and start the life I’ve always imaged (one not spent at my desk).
Lots of love,
