Finding Balance!

How do we truly find Balance in life?  There are so many things that we want to accomplish that require a lot of our time but we also find it imperative to take time for ourselves and relax. How can we do both?

I have found that the only way for ME to accomplish this is to think smarter, learn to sacrifice, and not forget about what’s ultimately the most important. 

As an example, I am working hard towards saving for my son’s college education. Yes, I know he is only 23 months old, but should I be killing myself trying to save it ALL right now.  I could just allot myself a certain amount per year to save and that way we could spend a little on things to do together RIGHT NOW. That is balance!

The future isn’t promised to us, but what we accomplish, do and say TODAY is.  Let’s try to be smarter about how we spend each day.  This may require some sacrifice but what’s a little sacrifice in order to have a great life.  Don’t get me wrong, part of thinking smart is still preparing for the future.  And this is where balance comes in. We need to know when to hold ’em and know when to fold ’em.  Hold ’em means staying focused and fold ’em means to know when to sacrifice.  This will be well worth it to your spouses and children.  And also don’t forget to give your time to the random stranger through volunteerism. It will do your heart good!
