Family Work Life Balance

Learning to hit the balance between work and family is always a challenge to many of us, including myself. I have heard many stories about parents  who work very very hard to earn money and to provide for the family but less time to spend at home. As a result, some of their children or teenagers were noted to be suffering from emotional difficulties or psychiatric illness.

The key to work-family-life balance is having clear priorities. And we need to constantly remind ourselves about things that truly matters. The late Steve Jobs  shared that he practiced living each day as if it is the last day of his life.

As for me, I try to be aware of not being overwork and have too little time for my family. I want to capture those special moments with my family, friends and my local community. I need to spend personal time too to take stock of each week and rejuvenate or recharge my internal “battery”, which is crucial for my own mental health.

Do you know that children spell love differently that most adults do?

Children spell love as T.I.M.E.

Healthy parents don’t find time, they make time.





Money can buy house but cannot buy home,


Money can buy watch but cannot buy time,


Money can buy a bed but cannot buy a good night sleep,


Money can buy books but cannot but understanding,


Money can buy medical treatment but cannot buy health,


Money can buy gifts but cannot buy relationships,


Money can buy a wedding ring but cannot buy love.
