A funny thing happened this past February; I decided to take a one-month hiatus. And it ended up being three.
I chose to take a breather from blogging because after 8 months, something was missing.
I began the blog with the intention of exploring personal transition and change, and came out of it with some wonderful perspectives, ideas and approaches.
But still, something didn’t feel right. So I decided to take a step back. To recalibrate, if you will.
I had thought that a month would be enough for me to clear my head and let whatever was missing to magically appear.
Yes, I do believe in magic, but in my task-oriented mindset, I also erroneously expected that I could put a timeline on said magic, and was disappointed when it didn’t willfully cooperate with my plan. How rude!
The thing I’ve discovered about magic, is that, it really isn’t ‘magic’ at all. It is, instead, energy. Not the kind of energy that fuels our cars or heats and lights our homes, and not the kind of energy produced from eating a healthy diet and getting enough sleep.
I’m talking about a different kind of energy - the kind we can’t see but we do feel, only we aren’t aware that we’re feeling it because we’ve been conditioned to ignore its existence.
This kind of energy we tend to refer to as magic, because there is little, if any, physical proof of its existence, and therefore, it isn’t real. Or is it?
I fully believe that these subtle energies played an active role in the delay of my return to blogging. And I am excited to share those observations with you in future posts.
Another realization I had during my hibernation period was how change doesn’t occur in a vacuum. Well, okay, I already knew that, but I don’t think that really showed up in my previous posts.
Change can be a catalyst, or the outcome of other factors. Those factors primarily surround performance and culture. And, all three, performance, culture and change, include individual aspects, as well as collective elements.
I am excited to explore the specific roles of, and intersections between, performance, culture and change (which, if you’re not aware, are the three pillars of my company perculcha), and also how the subtle energies around us can influence all three of these areas.
I am also very happy to return to the world of blogging, to introduce some new and unique projects, and to a refreshed perspective that I hope you will enjoy.
That’s it for now. Thank you for reading!
