This blog post is my last for 2009. I am following the example of a member of my inner circle, and spending the last half of December in a period of restoration and renewal. Leadership is demanding. It challenges your physical, mental, and spiritual stamina on a daily basis. And those days add up to weeks, and the weeks to months, and the months to a year. And at the end of it all, we take a much-needed "vacation" during one of the most stressful times of the year -- the "holiday season."
Not me. Not this year. I intend to write this blog, set up my tweets for the rest of the year, and relax. And truly enjoy spending time with my husband, my parents, my brother and his family, my in-laws, and my friends. Then, I anticipate that God can begin His work to restore my strength and renew my vision, purpose, and motivation as a leader.
I hope that you, too, will make time for restoration and renewal at the end of this year. And that it will enable you to be a stronger leader in 2010.
Enjoy the peace! Becky
