I started reading Overeater's Anonymous today and it started making me think about my life balance. Mainly because in lieu of overeating, I think I have replaced it with Snap Jewelry (both buying & selling). I find that is taking up a great deal of my spare time due to sitting at weekend events to sell and also selling it online. I have a full time job that is 40+ hours per week and I do some traveling for my job as well. I recognize that I am the type of person that likes to stay busy but want a more relaxed and on my time schedule. I want to get back into playing my piano, having time to make my crafts to give away as those give me much more enjoyment out of life.
I also believe that finding that joy in my life and not in food is very much what Overeaters Anonymous is trying to teach us as well. Therefore to find that joy I need to find that balance. I hope you find yours as well!
