Motivated, staying that way

I love days off when I feel like I've accomplished lots (taxes, report cards, lesson planning, cooking raw dessert recipe, reading, art, cat litter, etc....) and feel like I stayed motivated all day!

February, Today, Life Balance

Today was a good day.  I spend a good part of my day downtown going to zumba class at the Y, spending time in the sauna, eating yummy salad at prickly pear, (spending a small bit of time wandering around), and then getting a new cute haircut at serendipity.  While walking around, I headed into crazy wisdom and a card there was really calling to me.  Besides the art work, "life is a great big balancing act" resonated with what I've been thinking about during mid-winter break.  I've been spending about 100% of my waking hours either working, preparing for work, or thinking about work and as much as I (sometimes) love my job, I want to get back to loving the rest of my life too.  So this card inspired me to think and write and do some art all about striking a better balance.  When I return to work next week, I hope that I can carry this message with me....
