Today during a conversation with a friend, which brought a smile to my face and tears to my eyes in the very best of ways, I was reminded of the importance of counting ones blessings. It is something that I try to do on a regular basis as I find that it truly helps put life in perspective and gives one a sense of inner peace.

When was the last time your life felt like it was in balance? I know there was a certain point in my life where it seemed life was managing me, instead of me running my life. I wonder how many of you might be feeling that same way? I understand that it can be a difficult task to balance everything, and I am not saying it is easy--at all--but with a few adjustments you will find that it can be accomplished.

Stop for a moment and take a deep breath. Reflect. What is most important to you? What can you let go of? That is your starting point. Perhaps your priorities might even be changing. Life is constantly evolving, you can't expect the same routine to keep up with this process. Once you take stock of the overall picture you can slowly begin to modify your day-to-day life to meet your new expectations.

You also need to find time for yourself, even if it is only for a few minutes each day. Perhaps it taking time to go to the gym, to get your nails done, or a long walk along the beachfront. Or, one of my favorite things to advocate, reading to your child over a treasured storybook. Find a few calming moments each day to focus on you so that you can clear your mind.

It doesn't happen in a day--trust me--I know. However, if you start looking at your life from a different perspective, making changes as necessary, you will one day find your life in balance. You will be able to see the blessings in your life and find the negativity building up within you subsiding. You will find your inner peace.

Wishing you all a lifetime of serenity,
