No art today.
“I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is the moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle — victorious.” — Vince Lombardi
First and foremost CONGRATULATIONS to the Green Bay Packers for winning the 2011 NFL Super Bowl!!!
Growing up in Wisconsin, it seems that Packer football was the only real game in town. A balanced attack from both offense and defense, starters and back-ups were needed for this win. What a fitting time for me to start working on my Vision of Balance theme for 2011, and start balancing some things in my life.
I’ve started to shift. I’m taking my search for a Balanced Vision seriously and have begun to change my mind set and see what I previously thought could not be done is really possible.
One of the things I need to balance in my life is time spent on work and play. Being the self-employed workaholic I am, it’s not easy for me to make time for both. As I’ve said before, “All work and no play makes Tracy very dull.” So I did the previously unthinkable: took some time away last weekend, and went to visit family in California.
I actually took 2 full days off in a row and didn’t work a lick! I hadn’t been there before either, so it was fun to travel someplace new. Merely had fun: ate, drank, wandered, explored, watched football, and celebrated. (Thanks Kim!)
This is something I need to do more often: start having more fun and more travel adventures to new places.
Who knew? :)
