β€œwhen I left the corporate world to start a sabbatical, I had this immense fear of losing myself, losing my identity, and of course being forgotten by the industry. Who would I be then?”

Loved it. Just had to stop my career now while I expect my first child, and I totally see what you mean. How did you manage it back then?

Congratulations!! So happy about the news! I don't have a good answer for that.

At the start you'll be so so deeply into caring for that tiny human, you'll forget a bit about yourself. Over time then you'll start to see portions of your old self starting to show up again as in flashes and eventually, the old and new you will make up what will be the new you.

Its an amazing journey and will definitely be the hardest job you've ever had. I am so happy for you!
