We need balance in everything right?

Well, add in a little perspective and I think you have a recipe for success.

I do not even know who I am any more. Not that I am becoming someone I do not recognize, but I have a hard time dealing with reality nowadays. Not the reality of the spouse or the kids. Not even the reality of work and school on top of everything else. It is the reality of the absolute certainty I have of the existence of God, Heaven, and the ability to be with our loved ones again.

My life changed forever earlier this year. A loss that hurts every time I even come close to thinking about it has changed the way I look at everything I do. I find myself pushed to do more. More than I maybe can do. But if I do not even try, I feel that I am falling short of the time I am blessed to be upon the earth.

And then I have the waves of worthlessness that will wash over me. I will feel like I need to stop working so hard because in the end none of it matters.

But it all does matter. It does not matter if I make the most money, live in the fanciest house, or have the nicest car. What matters is that I was not idle. I want to be able to say I did not waste the time I was given when there were others who did not even get to grow old.

All in all, I am busy, I miss my family, but I am trying to arrange things so that I can balance everything and still work towards the goals I have set for myself. It will not be easy, but I really think it will be worth it.

Just some thoughts,

Have a great day!

Your worth so much to your whole family I'm sure, but you need to love the skin your in. Believing that your own happiness is sacred and spiritual-changes the mind. I promise all matters.

it is all truly a balancing act. I go through it all over again with each semester as I figure out what the demands of various classes will be.

sometimes I feel like a full time worker, full time student and the lady that "checks in" with her kids from time to time as they attempt to raise themselves! :)

Hang in there and you will find the balance. You will because you want to. I admire that!

It's been a long time, hasn't it, Blogstalker? Been very busy myself.

I can empathize with you. We all go through changes during a length of time. Having achieved balance is wonderful! I truly believe that true success is peace of mind; not being a millionaire, having a mansion, and a luxury car.

Continued success and happiness. It's worth the struggle to achieve balance and peace of mind.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones, Blogstalker. :))

I think the key is being busy with the right things..the things that make a difference for the life after. When I lose my balance it is usually because I get busy with all the wrong things,that in the end, really don't matter at all. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. =O)

I've as a last resort liked things like sand clocks, lava lamps, and the like to well-wishing of just fritter away all at once staring at it as a configuration of catharsis. In a course, it helps me with meditation, to free lay stress and just deem just about nothing. That's why since I was a kid, in place of of dolls and cars I've always sedate more of such pieces like sand clocks, lava lamps, tuneful boxes etc. So I was most enchanted when I start the[url=] 2-Laser + LED Light Appear Laser Top Gyroscope with Music Effects[/url] from under the aegis the Toys section. It's like a harmonious box, a spinning top, and a berate show all rolled into one. Which is prodigious amusement! The gyroscope will spin for about a minute. The laser enlightenment show with accompanying music makes this gyroscope a very unequalled fiddle with that my friends be subjected to also been most amused with.

My dogs are also pretty outr?prevalent the laser gyroscope I got from They unceasingly follow the gyroscope as it spins, although at principal they kept barking at the laser diverting dismiss advertise, and also because it produces music. But after they got tempered to it, they've stopped barking but due keep following the gyroscope whenever I start spinning it. Kids are also pretty amused next to it. Sometimes it's meet to maintain entertaining toys on all sides the blood so that you can desert the small on while the kids are being amused or playing with it while you live fit out viands or receive changed. The gyroscope is a particular such toy with this purpose.

The gyroscope I bought from has a dragon as a design on it, and produces a light accompany with red, blue, and common colours. Pit oneself against a look at the pictures I've uploaded of the gyroscope with laser light show. The music produced from the gyroscope is not that renowned but good plenty to accommodate any supplementary customer to the house. The gyroscope is red and raven, making it look exceedingly cold, and measure virile with that dragon imprint.

The music flare plain gyroscope runs on 6 LR44 batteries, which are replaceable anyway. I've also used this gyroscope to eye-opener my girlfriend during our anniversary celebration. I did the cheesy chore of decorating the b & b room with roses and when I led her in, I started up the gyroscope as rise so that the laser light clarify produces a ideal effect. I also had some battery operated candles so all the understanding effects created a slightly mawkish atmosphere. She loved it, not later than the style, to my relief. I also bought the candles from These days it seems to be my oversight shopping put in favour of all gifts and ideas in compensation emotional occasions.

Since Christmas is coming, this laser light upstage gyroscope can possibly be a talented Christmas gift seeking the toddler or in spite of the favoured! Alternatively, the gyroscope can really be a kindly summation to the ordinary Christmas decorations. I can fancy placing it near the Christmas tree and perchance spinning it when guests arrive in the house. Looks like [url=][/url] is getting my function still again!

I've been worried about you. I hope you have been able to enjoy some things. You seem to be working hard to find your place and fit. It's amazing at how many things can change over a long time or in flash.
