I've been doing it for a while, in preparation for the upcoming move, but yesterday I took some concrete steps toward letting go of a few responsibilities I won't be taking with me.
I love joining the things and holding the offices and writing the reports and sending the emails. I do. But over the last few years, I've filled too much time on my calendar with things I realized were good, but weren't filling me up in the best way.
I have a fair amount of work ahead to help prepare those who are taking on my previously-held roles, but the feeling of taking steps in the right direction is a good one.
I think the second half of 2016 is going to be one where we, as a family, can reevaluate what's important to us, where our priorities lie, and whether or not we are being intentional in our decision making. And I think it will be so good for us!
