Pressing Pause

Good morning and happy first Monday of 2020, my friends! Whether today is your first day back at work (like me) or you’ve been in and out of the office over the holidays, I hope you spent your time in ways that allowed you to feel rested, recharged, and ready for a new year.

I’ve personally made all of those a priority over the last few weeks, but I also added another to my list—reflecting. I’ve been reflecting quite a bit about where I’d like to see With Cheryl go and if I’m being honest with you (and I always am, for the record), I don’t have that answer just yet.

You see, during the last few months of 2019, I’ve been dealing with a health diagnosis that has both shifted my entire perspective about my lifestyle patterns and made things about my health history so much clearer. I’ve been spending my time prioritizing my health and wellness and it’s made me realize how much I put this on the back burner—and that needs to change.

So, I’ve decided to take my own advice that I gave you back in September of 2018 in my post titled “Make Yourself Your Priority”:

When you put yourself first, you allow yourself to be the best version of you. And, when you’re the best version of you, you will also be the best husband/wife/friend/coworker/family member you can be.

As a result, I’ll be pressing pause on With Cheryl. I don’t know when I’ll “unpause”—or if I will at all, but know that I’m doing this with both of us in mind. I always want to deliver the best advice I can to you and right now, as I focus on healing, I don’t feel I can do that. Maybe I will in a few weeks or a few months, but I know I can’t predict that just yet. BUT, if and when I do make a decision about this, I promise you will be the first to know.

I’ll still be posting on Instagram when it feels right (which I discovered from my 2019 poll is where a majority of you learn from me anyway!), so feel free to follow or interact with me there!

So, with all of that being said … until we talk again, I want to wish you a happy, healthy, and wonderful 2020 and to thank you for being as understanding and supportive as I know you will be.

Love always,
