Yesterday I had lunch with a good friend. We talked about our families and finding balance in our lives. She is busy with her successful business, family and recovery. I’m busy being a new Mom, adjusting to SAHM life and taking time to write/blog. She asked how long I want to be a SAHM? That was a good question and one I didn’t know the answer to. Right now, I feel like my life is balanced (note: this took decades and could be fleeting feeling). I know a lot of Mom’s who are working to create balance. They may work a ton and don’t have a lot of time with their family while other Mom’s are with their kiddos so much they feel lost. Finding balance in our lives makes us, and everyone around us, happier. So if we know this, then why do we have such a hard time getting there? Why do we let so many external pressures affect our ability to find balance and peace? Shouldn’t life be simpler?
