Memorial Day has come and gone and summer is here. So many exciting things happening with PPM that I want to shout from the rooftops! I logged into my website to get to some much needed updating and realized it had been MONTHS since my last post.

Naturally, I felt like berating myself for not staying on top of this. But after a few breaths, I remembered...balance is hard. Being hard on yourself can be motivating, but it can also be defeating. Everyone is trying to do the very best they can with what they have, and it's advice I give new parents every day. Why not try to take a spoonful of my own medicine?

I'm running a business while working a 40 hour-week job and that's just the professional side of my life. I have to learn to cut myself some slack. Balance is hard. I should probably do a little more yoga and a little less stressing about the little stuff. Trying to be a good patient takes patience, but it's my intention for the rest of 2015.

Although not pediatrics or health related, here's a link for an article about women who just graduated from Harvard Business School. It's rejuvenated my resolve and strikes at the heart of what Pediatric Peace of Mind is all about:

"There are three circles: What you're good at, what you love to do, and what will allow you to make money. When you can find the intersection of those three things, then you've hit the jackpot."

Add a little compassion for yourself, and you're golden, baby.

Be well, #lenthern
