Tis the season of email exchanges that begin with "circling back". We set new meetings, start new projects, or pick up where we took a break. We create new goals, decorate vision boards and reassess our passions, vocations, calling. In the midst of all the circling back- we hope you will circle back to yourself. Check in. Plan for rest. Create boundaries that work for you. Ask yourself, "are you doing well?" May this not just be the beginning of the year but the beginning of treating yourself well all year long.
