But it's my job.
I get to work at 8:29am and leave at 4:30pm. I hop in my car and, most days, promptly forget where I work until the next morning.
My personal life is chock full of activities that I want to do, books that I want to read, people that I want to spend time with.
Work life balance I have in spades.
It's the life life balance that I'm struggling with.
Years ago, I decided that I wanted to be a renaissance woman. Someone who knew a lot about a lot of things and who participated in a wide variety of activities. Someone who could just as easily fix your car as whip up a gourmet supper all without breaking a sweat. I am not a renaissance woman quite yet but I'm working on it. I know where the oil goes in the car now, have helped build a deck and make a mean hot and sour soup.
Maintaining a life life balance is proving to be a bit of a challenge because there are so many things that I love to do. These days, I run, cycle and curl with a bit of yoga thrown in. My body is most certainly being challenged. My mind - well not so much. I have not been taking as many pictures, have not read as many books and have not taken a course in a while.
I feel sluggish when I don't exercise. My mind gets to be the same way.
So, I've started blogging as a way of exercising my writing muscles. I have a pile of new books by the bed to kick start my imagination and get me thinking. Next step - dust off the camera.
After I get my run in of course!
