Work Life Balance

Stress at work. Finding the perfect work life balance



I’ve often been asked about the perfect life balance equation. Being an overachiever most of my life, I didn’t pay much attention in my early years to understanding that delicate balance between work and play. For the first decades of my life it was all about seeing the goal post. I often wore blinders until I obtained scholastic goals. That was then followed by career. It was not until closer to the millennium when I finally lifted my head and realized the entire world that lay in front of me and all the life experiences and times with family that I had missed.

With tons of hindsight and some regret, I can tell you that the time spent with loved ones before they’re no longer on this planet, the glee of a child when they tear open the paper on that present you just handed them, the look of surprise when you visit and old friend out of the blue, the smiles shared with new friends as you clink glasses in celebration, and the fulfillment you gain when sharing insights with your spiritual network that are precious. It is those memories and not the ones of that work deadline that you pulled an all-nighter to make, that remain in your heart.

So when I talk about balance today, I take time to access the entire picture. For me it includes, an assignment where I can add value and make a difference, opportunities to volunteer, access to a community of like-minded spiritualists, new friendships with deep thinkers who like to live outside the 2-by-2 and availability to family and old friends.


Anything less in the long term is unacceptable.

Sending you love and blessings,

Happy Easter 2016


I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Easter Sunday. It's a time for rebirth and transformation.

So many people have no one in their lives to share good times and holiday's with. I remember my first holiday in Sedona, AZ. It was the first time in many years that I did not share the holiday with family.  I was fortunate, having a close connection to like-minded spiritualists within the community. It was so nice to share that time with those who were in Sedona on their spirit quests.


As you break bread with those you love today, take a moment to be grateful for the people in your life, those precious few with whom you share your time, who value, love and accept you. 

Sending you love and blessings,

Wednesday

LeeZa Donatella kicks it with the JZ Band for Album Debut "Sauce" in Bend, OR

JZ Band: David Zandonatti, Joe Leonardi, Mark Ranson, Scott Hersh and Kaleb Kelliher
Abum: SAUCE
I try and do something exciting on my birthday each year, and this year was no exception. One of my dearest friends, Jesaca was shocked when her soon to be hubby walked me in the back door of their Bend, Oregon home.
Celebrating both Jesaca’s and my birthday that weekend had an added thrill. We were invited to enjoy VIP access and green room privileges to the JZ Band’s album debut, held at the Capitol, a great new club located at 190 NW Oregon Ave in Bend. Their music has a jazzy and up-beat blues charm that rocked the house, as people of all ages danced till they dropped. It was wonderful to see buddy, lead and songwriter Joe Leonardi again, as I got to experience his stage presence. With a special guest appearance by lead guitarist Mark Hatcher, it was a night that will be long remembered.


I spent time with Capitol owner, Nate Engell who explained his vision. It truly was the perfect marriage of nostalgia, entertainment, and delight. Nate, I think you have a winner here.



Thanks to the JZ Band for making my night and blessings on the success of your new album.

Find Your Center: Ways to Regroup




There are times in all of our lives, that we feel as if we're spinning in some proverbial hamster wheel. I know that when I am feeling stuck I have to take time to reflect and regroup.  Now I do this by meditation without mantras or visuals. Perhaps you find this peace, this center in another way. As long as you do not rely on substances then you are on the right track.  


Substances distract, balance and center, attracts.

Once I find my center, my balance, that’s when things become very clear. And when things are clear, doors open.

I laugh when I think about all the little things I see out there that get people in a frenzy; a car moving just a little too slow in front of them during their morning commute; the cashier taking too long to return their change; a line at some store.

These things no longer bother me. But I do still get sucked into the middle of an energy storm, not knowing which way to turn. And that makes me question the dream. Actually, when I'm in the middle of this storm, I inwardly say, "It's only a dream, it's only a dream."


It's when I turn inward that I find peace. 

Try it, and you may find peace as well.

Blessings,
LeeZa Donatella
