Returning to the Land of the Living

I’ve been silent and missing for a while now but I’m ready to announce that I’ve returned to the land of the living.  It’s an amazing, incredible, wonderful feeling.

In March I started B School, business school for entrepreneurs in the digital age, run by Marie Forleo.  Marie is inspiring, practical, knowledgable and packs years worth of information into every class.  It’s intense.  The homework alone is the equivalent of a full time job.

I was also holding down my day job, which is stressful and pretty exhausting.  Working on multi-million dollar software development projects is not for the faint of heart.

I was working with grieving children and their families when I could.

And I was trying to lead a normal life, shopping for groceries, keeping up the laundry and cleaning the house.  

In other words, I was burning the candle at about four ends.

And I got walloped.  You name it, I think I had it.  Take the worst flu you’ve ever had and combine it with the worst cold you’ve ever had, and that’s where I was.  For FOUR agonizing weeks.  

I slept sitting up so I could breathe, popped all kinds of pills, worked as much as I was able in between naps to keep a paycheck coming in, and let everything else fall by the side.  I even paid someone to do my grocery shopping and deliver it.  It wasn’t cheap, but it was worth it.

My body told me in no uncertain terms that it was maxed out.  It gave me no choice but to stop and take care of myself.  I listened.  I healed.

Now I’m picking things back up but doing it in a much more realistic way.  So look for more content and all kinds of cool stuff coming up.  I’ve had time to do some thinking and have a whole list of interesting things to talk about.

Hugs (the safe, non-contagious kind)!

  1. I was wondering where you disappeared to! I’m glad you’re feeling better, but it’s a slow road back to health (as you already know).

    I finished the Julia Cameron book. The last few chapters were disappointing – she could have easily left them out as they just covered much of what she’d already written earlier.

    I’m not sure it’s worth going to Facebook to leave any more comments.
