Striking the Balance

I have written a lot about balance here and here on the good ol blog.
Right now. I am truly happy. 

I think I am almost at the right amount of balance for my life right now. I have a job I love, a steady and decent paycheck, stimulating hobbies, a social life, and my husband.


My job is one I never thought I would have before. It is more of the same of what I was doing before, but much harder. I love what I do, I love helping people, I love connecting people to resources. I am so thankful for my position. I have had to adjust to a position in which I put in overtime every week; with an increased volume of crisis situations, it has really taken a toll on my wellness. I am slowly working on that. It took a while for me to adjust since when I first started, I would get home and be so tired, feel like it's already night time and just get ready for bed. No blogging, no social times. I felt like I need to spend as much time possible winding down and re-energizing for the next day.

Will balance ever be totally achieved? Probably not, but happiness, that can be achieved.


We all owe ourselves happiness. You know what else I owe myself? Brunch with the girls. Going out for drinks after work. Date night. Just because I leave work when it's dark outside doesn't mean I can't go play for a few hours and enjoy the company of good friends. Kevin sees me in scrubs or PJs all the time. I want to get all dressed up and go out to dinner! So I have to find a way to fit that in. Right now I am doing a better job of that and I couldn't be happier!


Do you have any master time management tips? 
What are you focusing on to contribute to your happiness?
