It feels as if I haven’t been a part of my business for so long but in reality, I have only been gone for two weeks of the last six. I have been on vacation and it’s been fabulous! I have traveled and relaxed and enjoyed my time fully. However, I miss my studio. I miss the students and my routine. I miss being in the “zone” of running the business and interacting with the rest of my fellow business owners.
As I contemplate getting back into the routine today, I am finding that I feel out of sorts. I actually feel a little blue. Not because I want to be on vacation, but because I feel a bit uninspired because my mindset has lost its focus. By being gone for so long, I feel a bit derailed and the effort to get back on track is staring me in the face, even as I write.
I know that the blues will pass as soon as I get “back in the saddle” and once again assume my role as teacher, entrepreneur, coach and friend. Until then, I will reset my mind with activity, research, study and focus. The dullness of my mind will clear and I will emerge again.
Vacation blues – they really do exist, even for those of us who LOVE their careers :)
