Okay, so I’m not trying to exaggerate or anything, but the last month has been a whirlwind of activities, both on the personal as well as professional front. Let’s talk about the home front here, because I always leave work at work and then come home (even if it means reaching home very late as has been the case lately). I’ve taken up jogging daily, even if it means for a mere 10 minutes. I’ll gradually – hopefully – increase it for good by and by.
Also, a new resolution which I have pledged to make time for every day is reading. I used to read books by the tons back in college, post which something or the other always found precedence over reading. So half an hour before bedtime, all gadgets off and reading it is. Feels really good and satisfying. The daughter has specially designed a bookmark to mark where I left off.
What I’ve come to realize is this: There’s nothing known as a perfect work-life balance. If someone says it exists, they’re probably trying to show off or something. You work some, you live your life some, but both always tend to overlap. What is really important here is what works best for you and your family; whether you’re able to have an evening meal together at the dining table and laugh over the day’s happenings, planning for the next day to come. That, at least for me, is what I call the perfect work-life balance.
Adieu July. Here’s to a new month full of work and life!
