Five Minute Friday - work

Every Friday we unite for five minutes. Only five minutes, that's all we get, that's all we have. And then, right where we are, no edits or second thoughts, we publish those words. This week, we write on work.

It is no secret...this mamma LOVES to work.
She loves to sit down and have a few hours of quiet just me and my work.
I feel a certain hum while I'm working...I feel good about myself.

And so, I have to force myself to not love my work to death.
I cannot kill my work anymore.
I cannot become all about the work and I cannot kill what I created.
I have to have to have to find balance.
It is the reason I started this all. I want to be in your lives, I want to be present. I want to have other interests, I want to love other parts of my life.
I want to feel that hum elsewhere.

And so, I figured it out.
I stopped making everything a push.
I know when I need to stop.
I know when I need to give more of myself.
I know when I can walk away and I have other things that I can turn to.

My balance will never ever look 50/50.
It will never be an even split.
But, it will exist, I will make sure of it.

Because this time, I will be more than just my work and my career.
This time I will be the bride, puppy owner, runner, walker, mamma, friend, family member, love bug that I am.

But, to my work, I will always write you love letters.
