I met a new acquaintance for lunch yesterday. It was really nice, and this person and I have a lot in common.
She was relating some of her life and interests to me, and I found myself silently wondering how she found time to do it all? She has a demanding job, a family, wide social circles and several hobbies and interests. She wasn’t flaunting her lifestyle, she was sharing where and in what she finds meaning, and I thought it all very cool.
But how does she do that?
The question stayed with me yesterday as I thought about work/life balance, what it takes to invest in meaningful relationships, time spent traveling around the area to support interests and relationships, then back to wondering how other people do it?
Then is dawned on me that I don’t live like that because so much of my energy is taken up with PTSD.
I’m going to have to think on this one a bit and get back to y’all.
