I like the sound of that :) If I am responding to myLot discussion and my daughter approaches me and ask me "Daddy, Can you help me color this page?" I would gladly answer: OK, but I'll fix you a glass of milk first ... To me this a balanced, healthy work family relation. Welcome to camel529.

Thanks for your response. Sometimes it's really hard to keep work and life in harmony ,but what we should do in our rest life ,I think ,is to achieve something and enjoy it . Do you agree me ?

I know many people that don't have an even balanced life, they spend many hours at work but but have little time to spend with their family. I know one person that sits in his arm chair all day and she spends much time moaning. I also know one person that works really hard and on his days off does handy man sort of work around his house. It takes him six months to put in a new kitchen but it would be easier to get a workman in to do it. Then he would get more family time or moments to relax. People can balance their life by ensuring a balance between work, family and their hobbies. I enjoy my life through my work in teaching, my family, my pets and my traveling as well as my other hobbies. Getting a new interest can work wonders for many people and it can help them enjoy life.

The life should also be balanced. It should have joys, sorrows aches and pains, shocks and happiness all interspersed. Only then a life can be said to be an interesting journey. Like the food we have to eat all types of varities should be there in ones life. Otherwise we'll get tired and fatigued. If it is happiness all round you you'll get bored, if it is sadness all around you you'll be tired out. So every thing should be mixed to make a nice mixture. Only the we can say our life is interesting.

I agree .I think all of us want to have achievement and enjoyment at the same time.The point is how to hold the both .It may take our whole life toget that.

Hello, yes, life is a journey and everyday is what you want it to be...well, sometimes it is not. Most of us do work, at home, at a job or at just to be who we are...To enjoy life that depends on what we like and if we go to get what we want or enjoy. We can enjoy a good book, movie, conversation, food, travel, your choice. As far as balanced...well, we don't always have a balance, sometimes we work and that takes up most of the day, somes we are sick and can't do anything, other times we just don't want to do anything. Healthy work is work that we enjoy, family and friends are important because we need people in our lives...this is very important. Spirit is the most IMPORTANT. We need GOD in our lives to help us be better people and to learn LOVE.

Yes ,most people are leading imbalanced life ,they are successful in woork but unhappy ,they are wealthy but unhealthy.So sometimes I wonder it is deserved ? I think everyone should find space for himself to have the chance to feel balanced .We need not only material wealth but also spirit wealth.Right?

"Life is a balance between good and evil, between happiness and unhappiness. What if we were always happy and I did not have problems? " Life is to accept your problems and solve them, whether you like it or not. Many times we crashed and unfortunately we are too blind to see that the windows are open, even if the door seems to be locked. There are things we want them fiercely and not suffer when we receive, but do these things always make us happy? There is little need participation from everyone, because we should be aware that certain things we should be, some people are wrong for us, some dreams will not ever come true, because we hold. When we are disappointed would be to think twice before you step into despair, it is worth? If the thing we want to cause us unhappiness, what is its purpose? We must know when to put an phrase has too many mistakes and the author does not want to correct it. "All things happen for a reason" and if we can not see it now, certainly we will intege meaning later. Patience is a virtue, but what do you do when you endorse this as a "patient" and realize that you will not receive any of what once made ??you happy? "To be happy means to be alive", we can not live life waiting to be happy. Happiness does not think, does not impose limits, does not make you sad, do not make you wait, not looking for an excuse, do not get happiness in solitude ..... when you feel at peace with yourself and know that you are strong enough to the right decisions.
