Much Love, Hugs, Peace & Comfort :)

Good Morning

It’s so easy for work to trickle into every other aspect of your life, but people who are able to separate the two are happier.

80% of my life was my job and now that I have retired I am stuck as everything was tied to my job. For 3 years I get up in the morning and do not know what to do.

I am very unbalanced.   "Now there is a true statement" smhair

Hugs to all

Kitt,

My grandmother has such severe arthritis and she was telling me the same thing yesterday. Her whole life (grew up in the Depression), she worked the fields, worked for other people, etc. She is feeling unbalanced herself because she "was the job" for so many years until I took over the farm about a decade ago. She is mad because she can't do even do dishes anymore and is stuck in her wheelchair. I try to tell her that it is okay and that she earned her retirement, but I guess that doesn't make a difference when you can't get around like you used to. I am feeling this myself now that I've been walking with a cane for a few years now (my body decided to catch up with me:) lol

No matter what, we all have to keep striving. . . I just feel blessed that I still have the use of my legs even if painful:)

Luv you all and hope you are having a great day!!! :)
Much Love, Hugs, Peace & Comfort :)
Your bro,
 
Sam

Nanners,

Wow, congratulations to you, I am proud of you and now you teach us all how to do that. 

I am glad you have balance in your life. ((((HUHS))))

 

Sam, I can understand your Grandmother's feelings but tell her how much she helps by being there for you. She is a wealth of information and memories.

Happy Holidays to ALL

Kitt

I'm another who wishes I could say I have a work/life balance but unfortunately work seems to sneak into my thinking somehow unconsciously even when I'm sleeping (nightmares these days about work).  I hope soon that things will settle down at work and I can separate my personal life from it.  Hard to do.

Roll call? When did you guys start this? Am I in trouble for absenteeism?

Anyway, "here"!

Almost missed the question.

No I do not maintain a work/life balance. These days I have no life. Work too much! But the busier I am the better I usually do, mentally.

You know Skitt its my husband. He is so amazing, that when I leave work, all I can think about is hurrying home to him. I truly am so blessed with this man, I wish everyone could be loved as well as I am. It really makes a difference in my outlook. To be loved so unconditionally, even though I have Crohns and anxiety and am sick alot, his love and support truly is nothing short of pure heaven.

I pray for the same for everyone.

Debaser, We changed fro plain old Roll Call to throwing in a daily question  turn I am really learning from the answers.

Nanners, you are indeed lucky and so is your husband.

Hugs
Kitt
