Happy Success Monday!
Welcome to Chapter 16, one more chapter and this book will be completed. I am excited to know that we have continued this journey of self edification together. As I read Chapter 16 Life’s Magical Balance the first phrase to come to mind was “work life balance”. I have to be honest and say I struggle with knowing what “work life balance” truly means.
In my reality I go to work and I take care of my family. Anything else that I want to do fits within those parameters. So for me this chapter was reinforcement that my reality was valid. One thing this chapter did remind me of was the importance of promoting my own health. As you read this chapter, what thoughts came to mind for you?
Oh well, time to work out for good health.
