Lately, as a result of my fears, I find myself working intolerably long hours while being excited to do so. It is almost as if this frantic busyness in some way helps to quell if not mask the anxiety growing in my chest. After soccer this morning with my son, I have spent the last 3 hours working to create content for various blogs, etc… that relate to my work and, although I can congratulate myself on working hard to support my family where to find the balance? Certainly, working like this does not lead to dispassion, disenchantment and detachment.

How do you find the balance? When is it enough?
