A long awaited update – body positivity walk

So, I’m sure my 5 or so followers are all really preoccupied with what I’ve been up to lately and whether or not I’m OK, right?! 😉 Well, I am! OK, that is. A little stressed, a lot busy, and if we’re being honest also quite a bit proud. As I’ve alluded to in previous…

Wanting more (the burnout pt 2)

As I am considering my life from this weird limbo status of being on burnout sick leave, it occurs to me that the main thing I want is more, out of life, out of myself. The longer I am away from my work, the more impossible it seems to go back.* But how do I…
