Life is Balance
June 1, 2011 § 2 Comments
If I’ve learned one thing throughout my 27 years, it would be that life is all about balance.
Balancing work and play…
Balancing strength training and spa treatments…
I had a little weekend get-away to Chicago last weekend to celebrate both my college friend’s wedding and my sister’s birthday. I went with the mind-set that I was going to be fully present in sharing each of my 3 short days with these people who I don’t see everyday…some I hadn’t seen in 4 years!
I will say….I had a lot more of the gooey chocolate brownies than grean beans. AND it was worth every moment! I was able to share in these frequent indulgences of Bell’s Oberon, wedding cake and Chicago dogs with people I love!
I balance these short weekends rich in friends, family and food with returning to normalcy, especially when normalcy includes a brand new Vitamix waiting for my culinary adventures (complete with cute black kitty!)
I’ve come back to yoga, reasonable meals, adventures in the kitchen and routine with new love and appreciation for the small everyday choices that embody what is me.
