It’s hard to keep things balanced.

For the past few months, my focus has been pretty narrow.  It’s not that one particular thing has been dominating my life – rather, it’s as if every few weeks or so, my life has shifted, so that one aspect has taken over.  (There was a week that was all about family.  There was a week that was all about health.  Then a work-dominated week, a professional-development-and-growth week – and for the past two weeks, it’s been all about running!)

Now feels like a good time to be looking ahead to 4952this spring, this summer, and this fall, and to evaluate how I want things to fall into place.  I don’t want to over-plan, or to be too obsessive about anything needing to be a certain way.  But I do want to live with intention.  There are various things that are important to me right now.  I want to help Tee with WPF.  (More on that soon!)  I want to write.  I want to do a good job at work.  I want to take steps to expand and to grow my professional life.  I want to spend time with my family and my friends.  I want to take time to nurture my soul and my spirit.  I want to have FUN!

I’ve always been inspired by the Annie Dillard quote, “How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.”  Simple and true.  I want to spend my life doing the things that are important to me; therefore, I want to spend each and every day doing the things that are important to me.
