Let Me Be the Voice in Your Head Today 🙂

Written by Angela Atkinson

As I pursue my own fulfillment, I find that it’s important to maintain balance. For example, most of you are aware that I am a freelance writer. I choose to do this because I have had a lifelong love affair with words. Writing has always, always been my passion (one of them anyway) and I love it.

However, I also love my husband and my kids (and a few other people, lol).

Being the type of person I am, it’s really easy for me to get too focused on certain areas in my life. Yesterday, my husband mentioned that he was concerned that I was working too much.

Since I really work AROUND my kids–meaning that I work when they don’t need me (i.e. when they’re sleeping, at school, or otherwise engaged), I don’t have a lot of free time. But, as I explained to my husband, writing doesn’t feel like WORK to me.

Still, he’s right in that I must have downtime. So, yesterday, while I did get a few things done workwise, I spent most of my free time playing with the kids. It was wonderful and it turned out that I needed the break.

So, it occurred to me that sometimes we don’t really realize when we need a break–especially when we’re doing something we love. And, I think that sometimes the voices in our lives (whether they come from spouses, parents, kids, or friends) are what we need to recognize that we may be out of balance.

Balance feels good. 🙂

I had noticed that I was feeling very scattered for the past week or so, and often losing my train of thought. By taking the break yesterday, I think that I’m more focused today as I sit down to work.

Today, I challenge you to let ME be the voice in your life who tells you to SLOW DOWN and take a break–even if just for a few minutes. You could certainly use a bit of time for yourself or your family. Try sitting down and doing nothing for ten minutes–or take a walk around the block.

The holiday season leaves many of us frazzled and unfocused. That doesn’t feel good.

I don’t know about you, but I know that when I FEEL good, my life works better. So today, even if just for a moment, take a break and breathe. You won’t regret it.
