In between overdoing it


Royal Carbean Cruise 114I have never been one of those people who is good with moderation. I’ve been an all or nothing, black or white, eat the whole box of Girl Scout Cookies or none at all kinda gal. I have been trying to accomplish it all, but not finding joy in it or throwing the rule book out the window and regretting it later .i.e  an empty box of Girls Scout cookies. Once I became a working mother with way too much on her plate, I have come to see the need for moderation and balance to get through a hectic day with sanity and fulfillment. I have made a pledge to look for more balance in key life areas, food, finance, family and feelings. Looking at moderation as the key, or so I’m told, Come along with me as I document my journey to discover moderation and balance without losing my mind.

  7. Good morning! I was intrigued to see your post on David Snapes’ blog, and after reading it and Chelsea’s guest post, I am delighted to follow. I have a number of years more than you own, and I am still on that quest for moderation, but the journey itself is the thing! I look forward to reading more of your thoughts. All the best! –Pam

  8. I enjoyed your blog. I never thought of a blog on moderation. It;s really good. You have a lot to offer. I read your About page, it’s simple and to the point. I liked it a lot. I am striving for that balance and moderation everyday. It is not easy. Life happens and keeps happening. I guess within that realm we must find both balance and moderation. Keep up you good information coming:)
