It's what I seek in starting this blog.
A balance between the many forces that pull at me each day.
Phone calls. Meetings, lots of meetings in which little is accomplished. A constant barrage of emails. Questions from teachers, staff, my tech team. Staying current on everything technology. Being a leader, an effective one. Making people feel important through my actions - because they are. Reading, reading, reading. Being a good wife and mom. Taking care of myself through eating right and regularly. Training for that half-marathon that's just around the corner. Finding some quiet time to think.
Keeping all of the balls in the air - never dropping a single one - while keeping the circus on schedule, moving forward. And yes, it does seem like a three ring circus on most days.
So, how to balance it all? What's my plan? At this moment, I am not sure. But a start is to write about those forces that pull me in all directions because they are what make my story. They help to define who I am through how I react to meeting those needs - work, family, my own. Through this blog, I will capture my reflections, thoughts, and musings at the intersection of technology and motherhood.
That's my purpose - to seek balance through writing, sharing, learning, and making new friends along the way. Figuring out how to do it all, and do it well because that's how I roll.
What works for you in achieving balance? How do you fit it all in and not drop the ball? Your thoughts? Do share!
