Farewell Post

When you were growing up did you ever have a favorite shirt or jacket, one that you would wear every day of the week if your Mom let you?

Do you remember when it didn’t fit anymore? It was too small, too tight?

“What have you outgrown?” was the name of a newsletter article I wrote in October 2009. It was about all the things we outgrow – toys, clothes, hairstyles, careers. I was in the midst of a big transition at the time, leaving a secure, well-paid, full-time job to venture out on my own.

I’m in another transitional phase today as 2013 winds down and all the possibilities for 2014 bubble up.

The questions I asked at the end of that article in 2009 are the same questions I’ve been asking myself over the last few months.

    Why am I still doing this?
    Have I outgrown it?
    Does it bring me peace? Joy?
    Is it still fun?
    Does it support who I am today?
    Does it support what I want out of life?
    Can it be changed or do I need to let it go?

My awareness is that The Dreaming Café has served its purpose and it’s time to let her go.

This wasn’t an easy choice and it’s one I struggled with for several months.

But, the truth is, trying to keep The Dreaming Café up and running feels heavy, tight, and restrictive. Letting her go and taking her down feels light and expansive. (It surprised me, too.)

Closing The Dreaming Café doesn’t mean I’m going away.

I’m excited about 2014 and I have lots of fun projects and adventures ahead of me.

To tell the truth, I haven’t been this excited in a long time. I’m a little anxious, too, but in a good way.

The Dreaming Café will stay up for a few more weeks as I untangle the back-end, but in the meantime I’d love to stay in touch.

I’ve been honored to share my journey with you and to have shared your journey along the way. Never give up on up dreams!

Best wishes always.

In deepest gratitude,

sandy farewell

Being Motivated to Learn New Things

Tweet I love to learn, but what motivates me to research, study and learn something new is having a practical application of the knowledge I’m learning.

Using Scripts to Make Your Work Easier
