Do you struggle with balancing work and the rest of your life? I can tell you that I have certainly struggled the last few years. I am so passionate about education and making school a better place for teachers and children that I tend to let the work take the place of everything else in my life.
I have been without a job for the last few months. As trying as these times have been, they have also been eye-opening! My job is only what I do and not who I am. That sounds simple, but for many people it is a struggle. As I begin my new position this week, I will definitely focus on creating balance in my life and work.
My friend Valorie Burton states it beautifully in her newsletter this week. If you don't get this newsletter, you should! I will copy it here, but please visit her blog!
