I am very honored to have been asked to guest post over on Working Mom Journal today. My post is about finding balance…and offers tips on how to achieve your goals and be content with your ever shifting priorities.
Parenting, Marriage and Me Time
This is where the real struggle usually comes when trying to find balance in your life. How do you balance the needs of your children with the needs of your marriage and your individual needs. If you are looking for a magic formula, you will fail. Why? For similar reasons to why you can’t just give every priority 4 hours. Each minute spent with your kids, husband, or for yourself is not created equally. All time spent is valuable, don’t get me wrong, but there are some moments more important than others:
- A family dinner is not equal to the day your kid gets his driver’s license or your daughter is asked to the school dance.
- Sitting next to your husband watching the news isn’t equal to a romantic weekend away.
Please go read the rest and leave a comment with your thoughts.
And check back on Friday for when Blessing from Working Mom Journal will be featured here on Mom in Management!
