The Awakened Life

Life Reimagined. Success Redefined.

Missing in Action

I've been missing in action for about 10 days because I took a much needed break. After being locked down with a pandemic for over 15 months, I knew it was time. My husband and I are accustomed to traveling quite a bit, but due to the pandemic, we've not gone...
