I remember speaking with a web designer I had collaborated with on a few projects about a sabbatical that he took a while back. He had felt himself burning out and decided that he wanted to take six months totally away from his job. Now, few of us can just walk away from our work for half a year, but he planned it out and made preparations so that he could make it happen. He looked hard at his budget and made some changes so he could save some money and give himself a cushion that would allow him to go without any income during his time off. He admitted to me that it was difficult, but workable, and he did take that time off after about a year of working and saving.
Happy Friday! Instead of a video blog (our usual Friday post), I thought we could use some positive energy and inspiration.
I’ve been on a Fung Shui / positive-thinking kick and it’s been going rather well. If you’ve seen or read The Secret, then you know that by staying positive you attract more good things into your life. This can be used in any realm of your life – love, work, friends, whatever.
So, let’s take this time to remind ourselves just how much we love ourselves. We’re alive and the world really in our oyster. End the week on a high note and get energized for a fabulous weekend ahead! More pins are after the jump!
