Have You Ever Taken A Sabbatical?

Have You Ever Taken A Sabbatical?

Costa Rica

The true definition of the word "Sabbatical" is:

Leave time with pay granted to a teacher or professor after serving for six or seven years on the same faculty. Its purpose is to give an extended period of time for concentrated study. 

A sabbatical year is a prolonged hiatus, typically one year, in the career of an otherwise successful individual taken in order to fulfill some dream, e.g. writing a book or traveling extensively. Some universities and other institutional employers of scientists, physicians, and/or academics offer a paid sabbatical as an employee benefit.
I have never taken any time away to really just clear my head, be by myself and to have time to plan, write and dream.  That changes for me in just a few weeks when I will be heading to Costa Rica to do just this!  I am beyond excited!  
 
Luckily my husband does not have his feelings hurt as I escape to do some "think tank" time.  My plan is to journal, dream, rest and be refreshed.  No electronics, no phone, just R&R in a beautiful setting.  
 
My lodging is on the side of a mountain overlooking the ocean.  I will enjoy an outdoor shower, a screened-in porch and all natural food for an entire week.  Cannot wait!
So no my Sabbatical is not for an entire year, but I will take and enjoy the week that I have.  Hope you all will consider taking time away by yourself to be renewed and refreshed.  Remember:
