There are times when I think or say things that I know are telling about my own limitations. Last week I worked up the courage to plan two weeks off… in a row. I know of people who do this routinely and even take up to a month off. However, I have tended to barely tear myself away from work for a full week. In fact, the longest I have been gone – 8 days – was technically for business trip, so it doesn’t really count. I realized when I was sick for the past two weeks, not only did the office survive some key moments without me, but I think I’m ready to let go. Life does go on – even when I’m not there.
So it is officially announced and I booked my flight for a trip to see my parents in the first week!
