We have had such a whirlwind the past few weeks with tons of family in town, and non stop celebrations. Some days our kids had to miss a day of camp, and today was the first day of school, and there are many days they are going to miss. The next celebrations are starting already, my sons birthday is coming up, and we are going to celebrate early, because it runs into the Jewish holidays, and we are also traveling soon to see all of my side of the family. With our travel dates, birthday days off, and a month of holidays, my kids will be experiencing life.
My parents had to work so hard when they left the Soviet Union to make a better life for our family. I promised myself that even when I work hard, I would have fun. Yes it is important to provide for your family, yes it is important to have goals and save for the future, but if your primary focus is saving, waiting, and not living, then why are we here. Balance is the key, and each person has to decide what is right for themselves and their family.
I always tell my clients that investing in your health is preventive maintenance, otherwise you will have to invest in hospital bills and medications. I suppose for some people saving for retirement is of top priority, for me building and growing are important, but living in the present, being grateful, focusing on my health and inspiring others to put themselves first and enjoy life, is my way experiencing life to the fullest.
To each their own,
Grateful for Yoga, Mat Pilates, Prenatal Yoga, Labor/Birth Doula Support, and Arasys Inch Loss
