When is enough a enough?

So with all of the turmoil this week: me being sick, emotional roller coaster, my grandmother not feeling well, deciding to control less and say NO to more. I am know wondering with my career

When is enough a enough?

For those of you who do know me you know my personality is what is the next thing, what is the next income bracket, what is the next promotion, what is the next step, what is the... {You get the picture}. I don't seem to stop or even know when to.

My ENTIRE life I have put the pressure on myself to be the best that I can be [but truly I don't know what that is so I just keep moving forward]. No matter the role in my life I want to be the best at it and I HAVE never seen an end to my paths.

For, right now the Question When is Enough a Enough? is looming over my career and where I go now.

NOW I have mentioned before that I LOVE what I do - it was meant for me and vice versa but with having two kids I am not sure if I want more work - more time - more money or is it okay to be exactly where I am? Is enough - enough?

I mean I hit my salary goal at 30 and I am a manager, right?

My job is fairly flexible with my life, it is close and family orientated - so what is my problem?

I am use to going after the next thing!

So my question to myself is it okay to stay right where I am and be happy?

YES I can! But I need to remind myself that sometimes {all the time}

Does anyone else have this struggle? Does it get easier?

As I write this I think what is my goal: being a working mother and wife fitting it all in! Hehe being me :)

  1. I have always believed, what good is the money if you don't have the time to enjoy it with your family. Or if you do find time your mind is too stressed out to truly enjoy it. It human nature to want to have enough money to the point that money doesn't matter,unfortunately the only way to get there is be gone all the time or win the lottery.

  2. Does anyone ever believe that they are truly balancing it all perfectly? I'd argue no. Keep working on it though. New follower from the hop.

  3. Geez, I do exactly the same thing. It's like once I know I'm able to accomplish something...I'm soooo over it and ready to find another mountain to climb. I'm glad I'm not the only one.

  4. I'm a bit older than you but I still have little ones at home. And it never is enough until you realize nothing will ever be enough. Enjoying the moment with gratitude -- though cliche -- makes a difference in my life.
