I used to think that finding a balance in life was something to strive for. Boy, was I wrong. I know now that finding a true balance is not possible. I have found that when I am focusing on my kids, my practice takes a back seat, or vice versa. Even house work. My standards have clean have definitely been lowered since having Emery, but I would rather spend time playing with my kids than cleaning. With 2 kids, our practice, our house and trying to find some personal time I have a tough time juggling it all. But, I have come to realize that when my focus is on one thing the other things get put on the back burner. Sometimes for a day, sometimes for months, but at the end of the day my first priority is my girls. So I am learning to be okay with having a little bit of a messy house, maybe not getting to workout like I would like, to taking longer to get paper work done at the clinic. This time is so precious with my girls and there will come a time when I would do anything for them to be little again. I don't think true life balance is a real thing. I think it is about all comes around at some point and we just need to try to focus on what is the priority for that day, week or month.
