Life Work Balance

Balance Schmalance

I am probably not the best person to ask about work-life balance, because, frankly, I work all the time. I get up early, do my morning practice (a mini yoga/meditation/reflection routine that can range from five to 15 minutes long), grab breakfast and a cup of coffee, and then go to my desk. From there, I work like a woman possessed — right up until I need to go work out, or I get hungry for lunch, or I feel like my brain is shutting down. Then, for a little while, I make it a point to do something fun and relaxing that doesn’t involve too much thinking.

You Are So Busted!

You Are So Busted!

You are so busted! You know what you did. Or didn't do. Where you've fallen short. Think about it. I'll wait . . . I hope you've had time to reflect and figure it out. This was the single line my youngest daughter said to me: "You are so busted." Though she was imitating something from a TV show, it struck me and really got me thinking. I scanned. Was it something I ate, drank or smoked? No. Was it something I promised her and went back on? No. How is my marriage? Pretty damn great. Is my money in good shape? Yup. Doing well with my family members? Check.
