I used to think that balance was something that could be achieved. Something that I should aspire to find, create, force. But then I had four kids. And a career. And life threw wrenches into best laid plans. And I battled my own demons. I realized that as "leaned in" to certain areas of my life, I had to lean out of other areas. And most often I did not feel balanced. And my work has been to find a way to embrace the teeter totter journey of life. And that is why I have decided that Balance Is Bullshit. You can read about it in my recent piece on Dr. Laura..
