Did you ever think that your lifestyle needed some adjustments? Maybe you were thinking about quitting some bad habits. Maybe you thought about eating healthier. Maybe you thought about losing some weight or devoting more time to your loved ones. I know that I needed a lifestyle change a while back. While every one of us has certain challenges I think there is one are of life that we get robbed of as a society today.

The Cornerstone of Work/Life Balance and How to Change Your Priorities (plus last post with comments)
Do you sometimes feel that you are stuck in a rut? You clean up your lifestyle, your clean your to-do list, you take time for yourself (or at least you think so) and still you feel stuck. Your time is running away from you and no matter how much you try you still cannot get everything done.
I’ve been in that situation lately. It was really strange for me because I could not figure out what was wrong and how I could improve my situation. My work/life balance (even though I do not like this term) was definitely tipping into the “work” area and hardly ever touching the “life.” I had a lot of projects that I had just recently started and my girls have officially entered the terrible twos. Every day was a fight and I didn’t know where to get the energy and strength for it.
Yesterday my worst parenting nightmare came true. I would really prefer not to have the experience that I’ve had yesterday but it made me think about life actually.
Yesterday my 16-months old babies were playing in their room. We were getting ready for a big trip to the grocery store (they usually like riding in shopping carts and that’s a big deal for them). Suddenly my husband and I heard very loud coughing followed by screaming and crying. Our first thought was that one of the girls was choking on something and she could not breathe. Needless to say that our hearts sank and we ran as fast as we could into the baby room. By the time we got there everybody was crying and that was a good sign, it meant that both of our girls were breathing.
