A question of Balance

The first two months of this year have really taught me the importance of balance in my life. What it taught me is that I didn't have any. I got swallowed up by this new schedule and this new job. I have become exhausted. I realized that I have been equally dividing my time between being at work, keeping up with the domesticities (I think I just made that word up) of life and sleep. Not freakin' good enough. Not the plan. Time to refocus. Hence, the change of look on the blog (I hope you don't mind Sab!)

So, here's what I'm thinking. I will divide up my work day into manageable segments. Based on the fact that I truly believe that in my month at this new post I have been doing a kick-ass job, I am not worried about getting canned. Then again, getting canned would mean a less stressful job at say Pier One or something which has merit all on its own. Next, the creative part needs some more devotion as well as a little getting in shape. Baby steps, people.

On a side note, I can't believe how pretty the snow looks this morning. Light and fluffy. A reminder that cocooning is good. It should be a break from the hustle of summer. Again, nature's balance.

Yes, today will be a little easier. Another cup of coffee before I start with everything else. I'll stop and pick up some wine to go with the pizza delivery for tonight and the bare minimum of cleaning up. The weekend is here and I'm tired of being tired. Time to get my Chi into balance.
