Welcome to another edition of Third Thursday Thoughts, brought to you by the wonderful people at Hearts at Home! Every third Thursday of the month, we’ll be sharing our thoughts on the topic of the month. This month’s topic: How do you find balance in your life?
This is a really tough topic for me because I’m still working on finding balance in my life! I work from home as an editor, and the boundaries are often blurred between my home life and my work life. I don’t have set times when I devote myself exclusively to one role or another. You’ll often find me tackling a work project while my kids are doing homework or sleeping. I feel guilty when I spend too much time working, and I feel guilty when I’m not working! I want to spend more time with my kids, and yet I want to teach them that they are also responsible for entertaining themselves. And even when I’m doing one thing or another, my mind is often elsewhere. While I’m shooting baskets with the boys outside, I’m thinking about the blogging I need to do. Or when I’m on my computer, I’m worried that I’ve forgotten to make an appointment for my family or that I’m not feeding my kids a good dinner.
So, what about you? How do you find balance in your life? Feel free to comment below and visit the other blogs participating in Third Thursday Thoughts for inspiration!
