Not doing it all

A comment on a previous post, and ruminations on a Boston Globe article on the choices women make got me thinking about ambitions and effort, priorities and circumstances, and the idea of having the time for multiple acts in one's life. There was a time when I felt it was critical to live life like there was no tomorrow, but I now find myself at a point where it's just irresponsible to live that way. I have to think of there being many days and many acts ahead for the family and me. Being responsible in the choices I make (exercising, dedicating saturdays to taking the kids to Balvihar, teaching them about infinity and math early, lowering stress at work, etc.) feel more critical than ever before....
