In our team leader book study we have been reading The 15 Laws of Growth by John Maxwell. As I have been reading and responding to our discussions, I have become aware of the fact that I keep talking about balance...the lack of it between work and my home life. I know it will never be equal but I would like more of a balance. I often put my work ahead of my daughter and family.
So, I have consciously made an effort to leave school earlier to follow through with the commitments I have made not only to my family but also to my health, in terms of exercising more. I must say that is has not had the intended effect on me!
I find myself worrying more, scatter-brained, and not feeling as focused. I find myself thinking that maybe this wasn't the best time in the school year (right before STAAR) to start making these new changes. We all know that there is never a "right" time though. If something is important to you then sometimes you just have to take the plunge.
This brings me back to finding balance...I'm still looking...do you have any suggestions?
For tonight, I think a hot bath is in order and trying to get some actual sleep! Tomorrow is a new day.
