Until recently I was a corporate executive, mom of a toddler, athlete and wife. My friends and colleagues would continually wonder how I did it all and still managed to have my highlights done before my roots showed.
Life was on a knife edge, but perceptually perfectly balanced. Somehow, I got it all done. Every time, just as I thought I was drowning, I’d come up for a gasp of air and keep going.
Skip forward a few years and I’ve quit the dream job in pursuit of something seemingly better which didn’t work out. I’m uninspired. My so-called balance goes out the window, and even though the adrenaline levels have normalized, I feel out of whack. I’ve never had time on my hands, every second was always planned to get work done, train for an ultra-sports event or run our home. I self-diagnose my midlife crisis.
Equilibrio (which means balance in Italian) is inspired by my quest to find balance in my life. Somewhere between the adrenalin junkie and the pajama sloth, lies the person I want to be.
Equilibrio is a lifestyle blog on all the things I love – fashion & beauty, health & fitness and other life treasures like art, food and wine. I’m going to write and share my views on these passions along with some special friends who will be contributing to Equilibrio on a regular basis. I hope that Equilibrio will in some small way help you find balance too.
