sabbatical [suh-bat-i-kuh l]
any extended period of leave from one's customary work, especially for rest, to acquire new skills or training, etc.

I am on sabbatical from June 28th to August 5th, 2019

Each year in July, my members and coaching clients allow me to take a month off.  I invest this time into three areas; family + friends, rest + recuperation and reading + learning.  I'm grateful for this opportunity and wanted to share how I invested my time in 2018.

I began the month by traveling to Utah and attending a two-day training session at the Arbinger Institute.

We ventured off to Denver, Mexico and Arkansas for family time!  In between, I read 8 books, worked with my son in his job, rested, worked around the house and spent time with family and friends.  It was a great time off!  #grateful
