Achieving Balance

I think that I have finally found the culmination of my random journey. It has always been to find balance in my life between my family, my friends, my career and my activities.

Tomorrow is my last day of work at the Canadian Coast Guard as a contractor and I will begin my new job (and hopefully career) as a civil servant at Sport Canada on Friday.  I am hoping that this job will help me achieve the balance that I lacked when I was working at Alcatel.  As I am passionate about sport, hopefully I will be not only enjoy the company of my co-workers but enjoy the work as well.

 As my career is now on track, I can now focus on the other aspects - balancing my family, friends and other activities. 

My family life is always an adventure trying to balance my time as a wife, as a mother, as a daughter and as a sister.  As both of my sons are quite young (Connor is almost 26 months and Wyatt is almost 8 months), I believe that being a mother is taking up most of my time at the moment.  I am hopeful that very soon I will be able to achieve the balance that I crave in this aspect of my life.

My friends are also very important to me and I feel that I haven't been able to spend as much time with them as I would like.  Being a good friend is very important to me and I hope to be able to continue cultivating the friendships that I have created over the years.

My activities are the area that have suffered the most in the past few years.  Time is so valuable that I chose to spend it with my family and friends.  I am know realizing that I also need to make time for myself and my activities.  I am excited because I signed up for ultimate during the winter and I will be joining some of the other women in my neighbourhood for Pilates.  So hopefully this will allow me to be more focused in the other aspects of my life.

This new blog will allow me to track my progress at achieving the balance in my life that I have been craving.
