A coworker sent me a message last week asking if she could talk to me about work-life balance. I laughed out loud. At that moment I found myself sitting in my home office which was a complete disaster. In order to enter or leave, I had to step over piles of papers, boxes, and other work debris. I agreed to FaceTime with her to show her my reality.
I don’t have it all together. I struggle to find, let alone maintain, any semblance of balance.
But I’m always striving to find it, to keep it.
