What does it mean to “have a life”? For the past few months I haven’t really had much of one to be honest, and I’m sure more than a few people might have wanted to yell at me, “get a life!”

I’ve been laser-focused on business and making sure I create a thriving business. I haven’t been ultra-social and I haven’t spent much time outside. I’ve been sitting behind a computer preparing, planning, engaging, business-modeling, but not so much living.

I do it all in the name of “growing my business”, but what I’m realizing is that growing my business happens when I grow my experiences–when I am learning about others, planning with others, engaging with others! Of course, working hard and reaching goals is really important and I don’t plan to stop any of that, but I often do so to the detriment of the rest of my life. So, last week was about spending time with family and with James, and just getting my life back a little.

As we enter into the second half of the year, my goal is to seek balance and spend more time engaging in real life, rather than checking my Facebook. To that end, I’m getting up now and going for a hike! If any of you feel the same, feel free to call me and let’s plan a hike together!

Here’s to new experiences, achieving balance and getting a life!
