#ESMEINK : “Change” Day 11

CHANGE

{name it so you can change it}

I thought naming what sucks was a good topic on it’s own. So, today I’m going to name it to change it again.

To say that trying to be a mom with a career is hard, would be an understatement. If i’m being honest, some days I want to throw in the towel. I think part of it is the age of my kids. They require lots of attention, love and teaching, and are not in school full time. Another part of it is time management. I know I could definitely do better in this area.
I love being a mom. Wouldn’t wish for my life to be any different. I only wish for strength and wisdom to do it better. I feel the same way about my career.

Finding balance in all things in life, is an ongoing process. Juggling family and career is just one of them. When I put too much effort into one, the other suffers. Sometimes my mood determines which one I exercise my focus on.

I know the key to maintaining balance, is knowing when I’ve lost it. Paying attention to symmetry in my life. Putting all of my eggs in one basket, could be described as a bit extreme. But I want the best of both worlds. I want to be the best at everything I do. It’s in my nature.

I am learning for sure, that taking time to live life-like, really LIVE, will only inspire my work. So maybe that’s just where I should put more focus.

Also, I have to remind myself, it’s okay to turn work off to live the life you dream of.

I think all I can do is be my best at whatever is is that I’m doing at the present moment.
