1/2 Way In

Tomorrow begins July and the later half of the year. I started this blog in search of finding balance in my life. I think I am actually getting there! Sure, I have a long way to go. But I am content with the choices I am making and the direction I am going in. In fact, I am happier than I have been in quite some time. As my days of full-time employment wind down, my head seems less clogged. It has been a wonderful change not to be multitasking at every waking moment of the day. (this might just be due to the kids being with my in-laws though)

So what are my hopes and plans for the coming year:

  1. Be present with my children more! Now that I have more time to spend with them, I don’t want to be distracted all the time.
  2. Focus on minimalism and enjoying the things in life that are free.
  3. Having a savings plan for retirement and in-case-of-job-loss, but not become overwhelmingly focused on money and material things.
  4. Practice yoga every day.
  5. Find simple ways of celebrating my husband and our 10 years of marriage.
  6. Develop a social support system for myself and my family through meaningful friendships.

I am really looking forward to having greater balance in my life! I hope you continue on this journey with me.
