Finding the right balance can be tricky and takes concentration
If I take a brief scan of my life over the last decade where I have been working seriously, raising kids improvisationally, or doing both simultaneously, I can say with some certainty that if I ever allowed any “me time” to be “optional” there was a good chance that that me time thing – whatever it was – “didn’t happen”.
I’ll “try” to squeeze in a work out today…. didn’t happen or timing/activity/duration was sub-optimal.
I “should” make plans with my girlfriends…. weeks or even months would go by.
I’d “like” to get my hair done soon… roots for miles.
