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.

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 this year.

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
