Plus, starting new hobbies, journaling, biking, and more.
A break well deserved. We all need them.
I'm going to take a break too. A break from all the things I am concerned about in the world and just enjoy what is right about it. I want to plant potatoes and flowers and vegetables to eat. I may not be able to change all I see that is bad but I can change how I look at things and enjoy what life has to offer.
Good for you! Enjoy your time focusing on and your goals. See you in the fall 🍁
Awesome, Tammy! I just took a creative break for a season, and I’m coming back to writing with more focus and generative enthusiasm. Enjoy your summer, and I look forward to reading whatever you choose to post/publish when you’re ready to come back!
Have you read Rest is Resistance? It’s really interesting & 100% supports your decision to take a break. Good luck with all your other projects! And I look forward to seeing you back here in the fall!
Hooray for breaks! We need more of them for everyone, self-employed included. I hope you enjoy the downtime (which sounds more like shifted time, haha). I look forward to hearing how the time off treated you when you return to writing for us in the fall!
Hi Tammy, I, too, have been following you and reading your work since Rowdy Kitten days and each time it is a blessing. Thank you for all you share and point the way too. I hope you have a great break and there is no doubt I will miss your joyful, elegant writing but I hope you will have the chance to "look at the world with quiet eyes" (quote from Howard Thurman) as you take this break. May this summer have unexpected joys and refreshment and may you know a spaciousness throughout.
Enjoy the break! I always delight in your newsletters so I'll miss them but am also finding myself needing a break from some other things I do so I totally understand! enjoy your summer!
Have a lovely break! I will certainly miss seeing photos of Ursula, and reading your words. But breaks give us more to write about, so it's worth it.
Wishing you a gratifying break. Be well❤️
Wishing you a wonderful and peaceful and fun break! All the best to you and The Husband!
Thanks for responding, Tammy! It was my pleasure. I was SO happy to! I will not have much rest as my busy season has finally arrived, but with your post...I think I will rethink how I take care of myself through this new journey ;) I think I'll start by leaving the office before dark tonight lol, and going to the sunset with some ice-cream and enjoying the peace and beauty. See (hear you) in the fall! Thank you! Hugs!
I am happy you are doing this! I have been reading your work since I found you in 2007 with Rowdy Kittens. It was during the journey I appreciated taking any sort of sabbatical (especially social media) and I learned it from you! People will miss you, like I have from time to time, but if they're really caring and really like what you do, they will be back when you come back. <3 I applaud you for so many things and appreciate that you are still out there doing what you love to do...and then taking a break to do more things that bring you increased peace and connection. Thanks for the book recommendations :) Enjoy your summer!
