Perfect scales...


It seems I have, for the moment, found the perfect balance.

I am working, and loving it.

The kids are happy and doing well, despite, or perhaps because of, my work.

I am exercising four times a week and enjoying every second - be it weights or Pilate's or walking steep steep hills in the dark.

I am cooking. Cooking for pleasure and for chores. Entertaining cooking is the best kind.

I am reading. Real books. For pleasure. For the bliss of propping myself up in soft pillows and falling asleep at night with my book on my chest...

I am revelling in the involvement in the kids sport - the thrill of the win, even if it is just eight year old netball...

I am taking each day as it comes with my Mum. She is over four months sober. She is not well, but she is so much better. Her voluntary sobriety makes me so very hopeful and tenuously happy. I shall take each day at a time.

And I am writing.

Not blogging. But writing.

So I guess whilst the scales are balanced to perfection for now, the way that I have inadvertently achieved this balance is by letting go... of my blog. Not forever. Just for now.

  2. I am so so hearing you...it's a wonderful thing to feel in balance in all those areas and I'm feeling it too, and blogging is one of the things that hasn't been finding its place in my daily calendar unfortunately, but I'll clear that space again and pour out everything I have been noting down. so glad to hear that 2011 is ticking along nicely for you!

  16. Very jealous! Working on obtaining a little balance myself. With the birth of my second child only a month ago it may take a little time to get there. But your words are inspiring and make me think that I might eventually!
