I wasn’t sure this would happen in 2012.
I had such a good time (dare I say “life-changing experience?”) during my Epic Road Trip in 2011 that I just *knew* I wanted to do the same thing this year—and really, every year going forward.
That is: taking at least two weeks completely offline.
One of my favorite concepts from a recent Optimal Living 101 Reboot class I took goes something like this…
It’s not that we work too hard, it’s that we don’t recover enough.
For the next two weeks, I’ll be spending my time on Kauai and Maui.
I arrived (back!) to Kauai last week and SO THRILLED to be here just kickin’ it. ;)
I join my family on Maui for the week of Christmas—they’ve never been out to the islands, and thanks to $5 flights, it’s now possible. Really excited for them to be out here!!
Oh, then then I hop over to Oahu for a New Year’s Eve Macklemore concert in Honolulu. Crazy. :)
So what will I be up to during this break?
- Practicing my fundamentals
- Talking to people
And what will I *not* be up to?
- Insane amounts of time just being “online”
I’m particularly looking forward to the journaling, to really take stock of 2012, what went well/what didn’t, where I spend my time (80/20’ing my life), and seeing what my plans and goals are for 2013.
I have realized that whatever I do, I want the experience to be really, really FUN. You know, people laughing and having a ridiculously, great time. I’ve found a few experiences in my life (including some this year) where this is the case, and I’m looking to do more of that, including with my work! I also have ideas for more in-person stuff, along with developing the show.
Excited to see what goodness 2013 brings…
I hope you find some time during the last weeks of 2012 to relax, too.
Wishing you a very happy holiday season wherever you are in the world!
