Just turned 100…my 100th blog post, that is! Can’t believe that I’ve been able to keep at this blogging thing for more than two years now.
Can we really have it all?
In reading one of my on-line veterinary journals, I came across an article on how to assess life balance. It used an image of a wheel with spokes. Each spoke represented an area or category in life (family, career, relationships, health, finances, recreation, spirituality, community and personal growth). The category is assessed from 0-5, with 0 (no investment) being on the spoke near the centre of wheel and 5 (fully invested) on the outer edge. Connecting the 9 assessment points creates a visual representation of your life.
Had a lunch meeting today where one of the pet nutrition companies came in to talk about obesity in animals. About 60% of all dogs and cats seen at veterinary clinics are overweight but less than half of their owners realize it. An interesting and sobering statistic.
