Finding The Perfect Balance





This is my first post and I’m truly excited about it. I hope you can draw some inspiration at the end of it. I was truly inspired, that's the reason i made it my first. Enjoy...........

It was a beautiful Monday morning. I heard my phone ring in the living room, I quickly ran out of the kitchen to get it. But I got there a bit late as it rang out. I observed that there was a text message just before the call came in.

“I have been laid off work’’ It read. It was impossible to believe at first as Amarachi was one of the best staff we had. How can this be? What would have happened? What is she going to do next? Barely 4 months ago, her husband lost his job. Amarachi of all people I thought. She is 3 months already into her first pregnancy and losing her job will be extremely difficult for her.

You see Amarachi is strong willed, confident and a very hard working woman. I knew losing her job will be the birth of something new. I tried to ring her back but her line was switched off. I knew that was what going to happen anyway.

Fast forward; 2 months later, I got a call from a strange number, I picked up the call and could feel the vibes as Amarachi screamed out my name with happiness. She told me she wanted to see me and i promised to stop by after work, which I did of course. We talked about everything. Life outside work, how she has coped so far, what she done with her TIME and how she has turned her VISION to reality.

Today she has a business which is up and running. It took her just 2 months to put all that together, while still applying for administrative roles in different companies rather than her usual technical roles. I was extremely proud of her, not just because she was pregnant and able to achieve that but for the fact that she was actually able to get that done in such a short time.

When I asked what her motivation was, she told me it has been her dream to EMPOWER herself and others through her VISION but her former job took most of her time. But when she got laid off, she was able to find a time frame for her business and the rest of the day to her self.

Amarachi eventually landed an administrative role and was able to find the perfect balance between the two extremes.

Some of you reading this can totally relate to the above story giving the current economic turmoil. But you too can find that perfect balance.

Just look deep inside and you would discover a whole lot especially a burning passion for what you have always wanted to do or be. Let that passion be your push and let it guide you.

I sincerely hope someone out there can find their perfect balance after reading this post.


I wish you the best in your journey.
