Finding Balance

Is it just me or do our lives seem busier now then when we were growing up. It seemed like there were more hours in the day then there are now. I know that this is not true, but it is hard to find that much needed balance. Family, work, personal time, spiritual well being do not come easy. In order to fit all of these elements in our daily lives, we must plan, schedule, keep some sort of calendar, and plan all over again....

I think there is a lot of power in saying the word 'No.' There are times when we just take on too many task (especially women) that we want to accomplish in a short time frame. Sometimes we need to take just two steps back in order to move mega leaps forward.
Many of us feel guilty for having to say 'No,' but we shouldn't. In order to live a life of purpose and a life that you are passionate about, you must first be willing to find balance.
