In this week’s episode we are chitchatting about:
Balancing family, faith, fitness, finances and my business and writing schedule…with a newborn baby in tow and a husband who commutes extensively has been challenging and has forced me to realign my priorities and my organizational process. Here are my top 12 organizational strategies that help me keep my life balanced, productive and happy:
Hi Trish! I heard about you from my best friend a few months ago. But it wasn’t until yesterday that I subscribed and regularly started listening to your podcasts. I am from Canada. But I am currently laying on a beach on Lagkawi island Malaysia. I am currently backpacking throughout SE Asia. Three and half months in out of my six month journey. Fulfilling a dream I have had for years and finally made it happen. A big reason for me going on this trip was because the last couple of years I have went through some large life changing things. My biggest lesson and goals from this has been to gain independence and learn to love myself. Enjoy my own company. Being happy on my own and not needing a relationship to define my happiness. What better way then go backpacking for 6 months on my own at the age of 25! I am on this island right now for these two days because I put myself in a “timeout”! I had been overthinking things and stressing myself out and dealing with so many conflicting emotions and struggling a lot with being on my own on this trip and still enjoying all the moments and experiences of it without having someone to share it with. I was making myself crazy and taking my own happiness away. So I figured I wanted to gain independence and learn to love my own company etc. And I am failing at that right now and it has a negative affect on me. So I am going to a secluded island where I am going to turn my phone off and be disconnected from everything else and only have myself to rely on. To sort through my thoughts. And gain control again. Kind of a go hard or go home mentality. The exception I made to turning on my phone was only to listen to your podcasts. I want to say thank you for all of your positive energy. Your encouragement. Sharing your stories. And thank you for keeping me company these last couple of days and helping me channel my inner strength!
