I was talking to some of my coworkers about work and things, and this topic came up. 👉 Work-Life Balance 👈 do you know what that is?! It is a balance of work and life things. It’s not making your job your whole life but it balancing with your real life life. It’s important because if there is not a balance, one side will be affected.
This quote depicts exactly the point of work-life balance. You work to live, not live to work. It’s a delicate balance of enjoy what you do for a living but not making it your whole life. You have appointments to go to, groceries to get, bills to pay, family to take care of, or other things that pop up.
For instance for me, I hear all the time you are young , no kids, nothing holding you down, go live. Well, what they don’t see is me trying to be there and help my mom, who is getting older, take care of my dog, the house, and find time to do things I enjoy . I put my whole life toward the things I love, so I take care of my mom, I love my dog, and he is like my kid. Also, they don’t know I can’t have kids, so comments like that get to me all the time. I have such a hard time with work life balance and it’s a struggle for me. But if my mom has an appointment I find a way to take off and help her. If I am sick I have to take a day. It’s sad when it is work that makes me sick. So it is a work in progress for me but it is getting better.
So ask yourself, do you have a good work life balance?! Comment below what you think.
