    This is all true! I could not have made my relocation from San Francisco to Washington, DC more stressful. I only gave myself three weeks to pull everything together and relocate and start a new job. This included finding a management company to rent my condo; find a moving company to pack up and move my stuff; and find a company to transport my car — all while working 55 hours / week. My last day at my California job was on a Friday. I went straight from there to the airport and took the “red-eye.” I arrived Saturday morning. My sister, who lives in Baltimore, brought me a sleeping bag, a pot and pan, bowl, plate, and utensils to start me off until my stuff arrived two weeks later. I started my new job on Monday. That was the worst thing ever. I had raging stomach cramps for two weeks and was absolutely unsettled. That was also the start of 6-7 day work weeks for the next five years. When I was laid off, I was relieved. I remained unemployed for nine months. And people said I looked so much less stressed. Now, I’m focused on, and blog about, a balanced life.

  4. Our culture is obsessed with busyness! But do we have anything of real value to show for it?

    I wholeheartedly agree that we weren’t born to just pay bills and die! Jesus says, “what good is it to gain the whole world, yet lose your soul?” What we need is a Christ-like perspective that comes only through a personal relationship with Christ Himself. As we grow in our relationship with Jesus, we learn proper balance—which includes rest and even fun!

    Wishing you and your readers a very Merry Christmas!
