Gone are the days of having hours to dedicate to the gym, to meal prep and to a good night’s sleep. Reality has set in and it has been a struggle.
My job has become, well less of a “job” and more of a “career”. I was very fortunate at the latter end of 2014 and was set on the fast track bouncing from an associate to director in a few months time of being brought onboard. I know, I know. How terrible right? I’m officially a grown-up and life is riddled with new stressors, majority of which start and end with work.
There are more days than I care to count that I was unable to leave my desk for anything other than a sprint to the printer or a faster run to the restroom, finding little time to stuff something down my throat let alone make it to the gym. How do you do it? How do you find the time, the energy to fit everything in a day?
Listen to me! I am riding the classic “excuse-train” and I am ready to get off.
At the start of 2015, millions of folks are resolving to quit smoking, eat better, join the gym (or try and make it to one more often), get a better job, etc. In the spirit of forward movement, my 2015 New Years resolution is to find balance.
- an even distribution of weight enabling someone or something to remain upright and steady.
- a condition in which different elements are equal or in the correct proportions.
- keep or put (something) in a steady position so that it does not fall.
- offset or compare the value of (one thing) with another.
By any definition, my life is currently in disarray when weighing work, relationships, personal development, etc. This year I will find a way to bring myself wholly to a steadier position. There is no better time to do so then the present.
Ready. Set. Go!
