I am proud of your ambition! You’re a high achiever who doesn’t make excuses. You’re ready for work-life balance without sacrificing your career OR a happy and healthy family.
You’re someone who takes action, gets excited when you are offered the chance to make a difference, and says “Yes!” before figuring out how to get it all done. Our world needs you to live your dreams boldly and unapologetically.
That said, are you worried that you can’t have “it” all—a successful career AND a family? I have no doubt that you want the very best for both. I also know that the competing demands of all the roles you play make it hard to feel successful and well. I remember feeling so guilty because no one was getting enough from me … not my children, husband, employer, friends, parents, etc. I wasn’t even on my own list.
The American dream tells us to grow up, get a good job, and work hard. If we work hard enough, we’re told we’ll become a “success.” It doesn’t feel like this plan is working, does it? Gallup reports a significant decline in Americans’ wellbeing in 2017. Driving the overall decline was worsening emotional health, meaningful connections with others, and pursuing one’s purpose.
With so many adults working fulltime, it’s not surprising that many seek to balance work and life. Technology blurs the boundaries between work and home, leading to more work with fewer resources because employers see your availability as 24/7. Families of all shapes and sizes love and care for children and aging adults. There is a lot in the mix ….
Work-life balance is a myth. It implies that your work and life are like neatly stacked boxes that offset one another on opposite ends of a seesaw. Instead, work and life constantly mix together depending on the day, your responsibilities, schedule, season, stage of life ….
Intentionally Do You to Raise a Happy and Healthy Family
Imagine if you could have it all but on your terms. I know that you can. You define YOUR all based on your values, strengths, and desires. Together, we create an action plan that guides you to reach your professional dreams—free of guilt, resentment, and regret and full of happiness and success for you and your family. As your Chief Encouragement Officer (CEO), I know you’ve got this!
It’s time to invest in yourself. You can stop prioritizing everyone else and sacrificing your wellbeing. It’s not impossible to:
Create the work-life mix that allows time for your health and fun
Stop living with guilt and regret that you are not doing enough in any area of your life
Are you ready to follow your internal compass instead of trying to please everyone else? Re-engage with what is really important to you?
Don’t let years go by on autopilot, reactively responding to the latest fire and feeling guilty you didn’t do enough.
