Life

Balance

I used to balance on one leg for a longer period time. I would say around 16-20 minutes. I was able to hold 2 kids and grab keys and a bag.  Now I can barely stand on one leg for a minute.

I overdid it. But did I?  I think I would have made that same sacrifice everyday to hold my children again.

Balance is a tough subject in anyone’s life.  I have to admit sometimes I gave too much to the job and neglected my family, I also sacrificed my career to raise my kids, and this time I am pushing myself to create a business and have a lot of health issues to address.  I wish I could take the pie and divide it equally throughout  the day.  I realize now that there is this dance between career, family, faith, friends, health, self development and community.

Areas of my life will pop up and remind me that I have neglected that part of my life.  Balance takes a lot of skill.  Can you balance all areas of your life? I believe you can and if life doesn’t seem in balance then recalculate and readjust until you find that balance.

Happy Bosses Day- first day of being my own boss

Today was my first day being an entrepreneur and creating my own business.  Started my day as a mom making breakfast for my son (I have not done this in 12 years) and finding medicine for my poor husband.  Then jumped in on checking on my emails, seeing if there were sales with the Chloe + Isabel site, and organizing my calendars (white board, monthly planner, and electronic).  Right now, I’m listening to a training on the John Maxwell Team site while writing this blog and organizing my home office. Yes, I am a serial multi-tasking madwoman.

I wanted to do something a little different today – making sure my son was fed before going to school and not wasting my life in 1 to 1 1/2 hours of traffic going to an office.  I also wanted to something similar to a work day – review, build, and plan. I have had this practice since I started working at 15 years old at the Pacific Missile Range Facility.  I forgot the wonderful woman’s name that mentored me in that office but I still make awesome office coffee and seal multiple envelopes at the same time.

If anyone is interested, I will start a Zoom virtual workshop on achieving your dreams. Please email me: bambooshoothi@gmail.com.
