 Good morning Mintdom,

 I am moving more and more each day! My body feels it in lots of ways. I did not realize how closed up I am until I started training. It feels good to open up a little and losing 5 pounds does not hurt either! Lol

 I have Toastmasters this morning and I am the Toastmaster. I had to pick a theme and I chose balance. I chose it because it is one of my biggest challenges. I do not believe that I am alone in this. I am trying to strike a balance between work, play, and rest. It seems that I am either working or have my mind in work mode and when it isn’t it is in play mode. Now it is difficult to put exercise in a slot. It is not rest, it certainly is not play for me because it really feels more like work, but it doesn’t have anything to do with my job. So… I need to strike a balance between work, play, (play includes family and friends) exercise, and rest. I always seem to be in one mode or another or at the most two modes at a time. My challenge is to balance them all AND eat healthy to boot! How do you balance your life? I need some help with this so any suggestions are welcome. Feel free to e-mail me or post your thoughts on

 Is this the secret or is finding balance merely science fiction?

 “There is no secret to balance. You just have to feel the waves.” -Frank Herbert (American science fiction author and writer 1920-1986)

 Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

 What are you waiting for?

 Life is good!

 PS I need to fit in Toastmasters, staff meeting, work, eating well (packing lunch), exercise, a healthy dinner, and bed today

  1. Well, for me WORK is a must, PLAY is a need, EXERCISE still trying to get to it(I guess it very important for healty life) and REST…. well it just happen. I also find it difficult to find balance as well, but i guess we all have to try harder. Good luck.
