September 9--What is Balance Anyway?

There is no such thing as work-life balance. Everything worth fighting for unbalances your life.  --Alain de Botton

    What is work-life balance anyway? Spending equal time at work and not at work? Never thinking about work when you are not there? Those are impossible. Work-life balance suggests that work is work and life is play, or not work. But life can be a lot of work! What is balance to one person could seem like chaos to another.
    Everything worth fighting for unbalances your life. Big life events do that--going to college, leaving home, falling in love, getting married, having children, raising children, maintaining health, choosing and/or switching careers, retirement--to name a few. All these are worth fighting for. These upheavals are what make life worth living. 
    Balance is overrated 😊,
