We can't equate money with happiness. Believe me, the relentless pursuit of money has costs: opportunities to be with friends and family, attending once-in-a-lifetime events with children, and general chances to spend quality time with our loved ones. We can't put a price tag on going to a ballgame, teaching life lessons to our kids or just hanging out and laughing with those close to us.
On Monday, I published an article on a controversial topic -- You Will Never Find Work/Life Balance. So many of us have grown up trying to perfectly split our time at the office and outside it with friends and family. It's an impossibility. So, I suggested that we should forget about it and focus on "sustainable happiness" instead.
We all have a tendency to feel like we've somehow lost touch with ourselves and our joy when we are in transition or taking a big leap into something new. It's actually a good place to be, because it means you've stepped out of your comfort zone, learned a lot, grown and transformed to a new and improved version of yourself!
