“The major work of the world is not done by geniuses. It is done by ordinary people, with balance in their lives, who have learned to work in an extraordinary manner.” ― Gordon B. Hinckley

I’m Back!

I couldn’t stay away. I am three weeks away from getting married and couldn’t be more excited or happy with my life right now. My one complaint is that it feels totally our of balance. Sometimes it seems like so much effort is put into one project that other interests or goals are left behind. I have been trying to figure out how to balance things out, and this morning I remembered a talk that I heard in church a while back. Essentially the speaker talked about how important balance was in our lives. That even though you may be doing something good, if that is all you do then you loose balance. It takes effort to create and maintain a balanced lifestyle. 

In order for me to find balance, I need to be fulfilled and active in the spiritual, physical, social, and educational aspects of my life. I crave balance, and hope to one day be able to achieve it.

In each post I am going to focus on what I am going to find balance. I am excited to be back to blogging and hope that my old readers are still with me.  


Week Two- Life Happens… and It’s OK

Monday Dec 12: Easy Run- Today felt like I had never run a step in my entire life. I felt so sluggish and unmotivated. NOT A GOOD RUN! I ran 4 miles today. What did you do?

Wednesday Dec 14: NO RUN

Saturday Dec 17: NO RUN

I am disappointed to say that I only ran one day this week. This week was a busy week full of… “life”. I had birthday dinner with friends, work Christmas Parties, and was sick. Sometimes life happens and when it does you just have to do your best and not beat yourself up when you fall short. IT”S OK!! All you can do is try harder. This week I came to the  realization that running or whatever the hobby may be cannot get in the way of “life”. Hobbies cannot take the place of the people, jobs, or religion. A balance must be maintained. This is what I learned this week. What about you?
