Today, I'm finding it challenging to strike that perfect work/life balance everyone talks about.
Some days, I focus entirely on CLTIVATE, and I forget to take care of myself. Other days, I get so caught up in eating right, hitting the gym, prayer, reading, paying bills, AA meetings, etc. that my work gets little to no attention. Speeding up certainly doesn't help. In fact, the only thing that does seem to work is SLOWING DOWN.
Every day that I'm sober is a success for me - that in itself is a huge accomplishment, and it requires daily prayer, meditation, and "me time". But it doesn't stop there.
How do you find balance? Are you able to keep up with yourself, your work, and also help others each day?
It's ok if you don't accomplish everything today. Just be sure to take time to invest in yourself. Read, reflect, pray, and LOVE. Isn't that why we're here?
"Heavenly Father, thank you for this day. I mean it. Thank you for keeping me sober. Today, I pray for balance in this crazy life. I pray that you would find me and give me peace in my work, in my life, and in my relationships. That my soul may rest in you today, Father. Amen."
