In the Pursuit of Happiness

Getting it right all of the time is hard, actually it's nearly impossible for someone like me who actually doesn't even know if they are getting it right in the first place...

I strive for happiness, balance, calm, fulfilment and excitment in my life, after all who doesn't? Reaching all of the above doesn't come easily and it often leaves me questioning "am I making the right choices?" 

I work four days a week in a very busy and often stressful environment with one precious day of Miss Two and me time that we cram lots into. We swim, socialise, shop, cook, clean (well I do the last two) and invest as much quality time into one Mother & Daughter Day as possible! Of course we have the weekends as a family and that is wonderful too, but once the Sunday evening draws to an end, I get the pang of us all going our separate ways for the week ahead. 

I'm a 'grass is always greener' kinda girl. I go to work - I wish I stayed at home more, when I was at home whilst Miss Two was a baby - I couldn't wait to start work again, when I was travelling - I longed for routine and being still for awhile, I have now have that stability & I envy people that can go off travelling when ever they like, etc, etc ... It goes on & on! Stopping to smell the roses, living life as it is now, or however it should go is something I work on, on a regular basis. 

I guess the point of this post is 'am I doing the right thing, right now?' I'm working hard to help support my family, doing my bit, saving for the future, yada, yada ... or should we be sacrificing our somewhat financial freedom for more days at home with my little lady.
