Lately at work, my maternity leave is constantly on my mind. It is is hard to stay in the moment at work. In the back of my mind I keep thinking about what I will need to train my replacement in, all while wanting to enjoy the time I have with my students and this great work we all do. This maternity leave will be my first break from student affairs work in 8 years. I know it will be really good for me. I imagine this break could bring me some new insight in the field and into myself.
