Every day I work towards balance. I believe balance is ultimately what makes me happy. Work and play. Play and work. In perfect harmony. We are all different, and we all define work and play in our own way. In my “play” I like adventure, challenge, exercise, being outdoors and socializing (not listed in a prioritized manner).
Being a Mom I believe it is more important than ever to make room for my “play”. The dilemma now is that as much as I long to get out and do something fun, I always end up longing for my kids as soon as I go out and do it!
The other day I packed my backpack with everything I needed for a overnight hike in the forest, planned a nice route and headed out on my own. I could tick off all the points on my play list except socializing. And what happened? Well, I found myself more or less running along in order to get back home sooner. This is not the first time I rush home so I can get some more time with them. And then I sit at home and dream about a new adventure again:-) Ha ha, the dilemma of being a Mom:-)
