Time … where does it fly?

I have been very lazy lately with my blog and not because I don’t love it. Somehow time seems to have gone crazy for me between full time job, 3 kids and my searches for health.

Recently I have this obsessive thought of taking a sabbatical year on a beach were the weather is warmish the whole year … or maybe 6 months in a location and 6 months in a different one.

I have been talking a lot with my husband but we cannot decide on a location so probably we’ll have to go 6 months/6 months to please both of us.

My top reasons for thinking of a sabbatical year are:

1. I have been working for 20 years so I need a long break before working for another 20 year

2. My priorities have change in the last few years so my career doesn’t suit me anymore so I need time to think about what I ant to do, how I want to make a difference.

3. I have lost a friend to cancer few years back and I cannot stop thinking “how vain is all the hard work if you don’t get to enjoy your children and see them growing!”

4. I need some time to dedicate to “just living” without all the “to do”

5. I need time to reconnect to my partner and to truly connect to my wonderful children.

6. I’m tired and I don’t know myself anymore … there are so many times when I feel I’m very close to make a difference in this world and then I just lose touch with it all.
