Work life balance. What does that really mean? How do you know when you are winning in this area of your life? Is it even possible? Yes, it is possible, but it will cost. First you must determine what is essential for you, then decide what your boundaries are in life and in work. Your decision in those areas will help you gain clarity so that you are able to advocate relentlessly for balance in your life. Once you are clear about your boundaries you cannot be afraid to let the people in your life know what they are and live with the outcome of their understanding of what this may mean for both you and them. Be mindful that your happiness may not always welcome the support of the people in your sphere of influence, however if your focus is to express sincere love it will require you to come from an authentic place that exist in the center of a balanced life. Yes, it sounds easy because it is very possible. God desires each of us to dwell in the secret place, which ensures a place of stability and peace of mind that is unimaginable— this place will support you in the quest for work life balance in ways that you could not even establish with your own strategic effort. This work life balance falls somewhere between faith and trust in God- that He will order your steps and guide you daily in the matters of life.
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Psalm 91: 1-2.
