If you have been reading or following this Blog, you will know that I was working as a General Manager at a fabulous hotel (The Caves) for four years. However, as fabulous as that experience was - it took alot out of me and I became too stressed, too frenetic, with not an ounce of real time for myself. I decided that it was just time to move on as that kind of stress is just not worth it. So I gave in a month's notice in August and left in September. Since then it has been such a mix of emotions. It's a combination of feeling like "what happened to that stress" and getting used to all this extra time. It has been quite a shock to the body -- in fact, I have gotten sick twice since September with flu. Some friends say "it's your body adjusting and coming down from that roller-coaster ride." I have toyed with the idea of writing a book on my experience as a GM, as I do feel it would translate to a fantastic read! We will see. I am not going to rush into anything, but I have always loved writing and this could be 'the time' - the time that I now find myself having more and more of....a time to just create and meditate, and do yoga, chill....and just "be."
I have been put back in a place of love, a time to re-bond with my sister and spend more time with my nephew....a time to do more fun things with my hubby, a time to catch up with my great and genuine friends, a time to travel - both here in Jamaica and overseas....a time to really focus on this Blog and build it more. While I am on that, what an interesting adventure so far with this Blog. I never knew how to input half these html codes when I started the Blog four and half months ago, I didn't even know what a widget was much less how to manage the layout of a Blog on Blogger....and I have learnt so much. There is so much more to learn and I embrace it. I also have to credit A Beautiful Mess for inspiring me to start a Blog as it was their wonderful Blog Course that got me started.
This is my year to re-group, catch myself and just breathe. What is this year to you? It is not too late to start that long awaited project, get promoted, travel to that special place (like Jamaica lol), write that book....I mean what I am saying is that there is NO time like now. In reflecting back to the past four years, I have to say it was a great time, but I am happy I am now in another realm of my life.
