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?


  1. My life is all over the place right now. I'm definitely happy... but struggling with the balance of work/play!

  2. I am all over the place. I need to have more control of my day.


Comments make my day!
Thanks for the love <3
