Balancing Act

I hit the wall last week.

I finally had to admit to myself and to Scott that
my life is completely out of balance.

And just in case you were wondering:

stress eating of high fat comfort food
no discernible exercise
rapid weight gain

My dream job has spiraled into just this side of a nightmare and I can
see no relief in sight.

70 hour plus frantically paced work weeks are the norm.

My body is suffering, my mind is suffering, my soul is suffering.

Worst of all, my family is suffering.

My kids sense the stress and frustration oozing out of my every
pore and their response and emotional mirroring of my behavior is
at all once infuriating and creating massive guilt.

Scott gets to tag along for the emotional roller coaster rides and you
know he enjoys every minute of that.
So I am just going public with this information in hopes that I
start making the changes, put the boundaries back in place
and strive to once again focus on the real priorities in life.

Pray for me. Wish me luck. Forward local therapist recommendations :)
