  1. I think that everything is life since work is part of it. Part of what we make of our life and another way of being challenged and therefore of learning and developing. Thoughtful and thought-provoking, Sylvester! Have a great day ☺

    1. All is relative to this life we live. I think true balance is not allowing one aspect of our life to totally overwhelm us, but in the end as you say, it is about learning and developing. Have a great Friday! 🙂

      1. I believe the same. There is so much within our lifes. We need to be aware of it when one burdening aspect wants to overshadow all the beautiful that is there too. Thank you for this inspiration ☺

  2. OH! This quote goes against the grain for sure – there’s so much online about achieving work/life balance.. Perhaps only to a certain extent! By the way, roller coasters scare me 😉

    1. Whatever we are striving for takes us through loops but we manage to hang on. Thank you, Christy! Never been on a roller coaster myself either. 🙂
