Have you ever wondered if work-life balance is possible?
After spending 60 hours a week working in the Corporate world I thought I knew the answer. I believed that if you love what you do, there is no point counting the hours you spend doing it. Call it naivety that opportunity cost was never factored into my equation. In my case opportunity cost was all the things I gave up; time with friends & family, hobbies like photography & writing and most importantly pursuing my life’s passion. Since leaving the security of a weekly paycheck I’ve found myself making time for new interests, getting back in touch with old friends and having time to think of creative ways to leave an imprint on the world. I can’t give you the recipe for happiness, it’s internal to each of us. I can tell you that I’m perfecting my own equation and so far it looks like this:
Each Day =
- a splash of fitness
- exciting work that pays well
- a dash of creative thinking
- a great meal with a new recipe
- a heart full of love for the people around me
- an open mind
- a sprinkle of written thought
- something new
I’m free and I’m open to see opportunity as it presents itself.
