A huge benefit to living balanced is the ability to prioritize fairly easily and intuitively. Meaning if something feels off balance, even just a little, we can spend our energy getting back into synch.
Family time or exercise?
Both, even with extremely limited time.
Windermere 5k one morning, gym afterwards, dinner together at Epcot later, a serious father/son talk, and five mile run yesterday.
To cap off those glorious 36 hours, the talk of a lifetime before driving to the airport yesterday afternoon.
The harder we work, the luckier we get.
