Some call is balance, I call it harmony.

I did two things yesterday that reminded me of the importance of keeping your career/job in perspective. I went to Salem to visit someone very, very dear to me, Bea and her mother Grandma Slyh who is in the hospital after hip surgery. It meant so much to me to be able to see them. I left the hospital and went to celebrate Robin my soul sister's birthday. In order to do both of these things, I left work early and I felt a little bit guilty. After these visits, I came home from Salem with a full heart.

We try to balance work and our personal lives and in my opinion its impossible to have balance, at times work is busy and other times life is busy. You can't let your busy work take over your life. We have to put priority on our family and friends. Usually for work you give, give, give and at some point you feel depleted. With family and friends you sometimes give, give, give and some how you aren't left feeling empty, but you end up with a full heart.

This little trip was a reminder to make sure to keep my family and friends tank full. To not let the stress of work keep me from giving the time and energy to my personal life. To find the right harmony for both.
