work life balance

today i swam for over an hour in the outdoor pool at diamond park, surrounded by trees. i did lots of flips in the deep end. i slept in. i met a baby. i bought three fans for my house – one large oscillating and two small personal fans to blow on me wherever i am. i got turquoise cutting boards, the flexible kind. i found a beautiful swimsuit on sale. i did dishes but now there’s more. i did my laundry.

someone asked me today about work life balance – they were wondering how to get there. in thinking about it, i realized i’m there right now. working virtually, spending two days a week with my coworkers where we meet and cook and deeply discuss our work, and three days of working from home, meeting with partners and donors – its a reasonable way to work. swimming every day, being in a great relationship, loving my family, traveling and being home, protecting my weekends as time to mostly think and relax and not work, but knowing my work is important and doing a good job at it…its not a permanent state, i recommit to it every day. but i really like this moment in life – being tan and engaged, physically active, and highly efficient in the work i do.

so…yay!! tomorrow’s monday and i love that, saturday and sunday were soo delicious!
