Sadly, April of 2010 is the last post to this blog. I thought blogging would be easy! And, it is. However, finding the time to blog … not so much. Striking a balance between running a business, raising children and volunteering in my community has always posed a challenge for me.
I have come to the realization that I will never find balance. Rather, I need to move forward and spend time doing what is most important while I’m in the moment. No regrets. No guilt.
A recent news story stated that women are more affected than men by the intrusion of work into their home-life through emails, phone calls and texts, and they report higher levels of psychological distress.
I’m convinced it is because our expectations of ourselves are too high and we feel the need for perfect balance between our lives at home and away from home.
I will always juggle more than I can handle. But, thankfully, I’ve come to the realization that it’s okay to let a few balls drop once in a while! Blogging was one of those balls. It’s back in the rotation now, so stay tuned for more posts to come!
