It’s been a while since I last blogged. I took several months to prepare and adjust to significant life changes. I stepped down from various leadership and volunteer activities. I said no to requests to participate in new activities. I really took time to recalibrate my life.
This wasn’t an easy process because I felt a huge obligation to continue leading various organizations and to remain in volunteer activities. However, I began to lose passion and drive in my role within these organizations which was a key indicator that it was time to step down.
Out of this downtime came a rejuvenated spirit, a new sense of purpose and a commitment to help others live a purposeful life. I have more clarity, insight and focus to do what God has called me to do. Sometimes you have to let things go and reprioritize in order to grow.
