seeking fulfillment | Milagros Moments

I recently submitted a post for the Student Affairs Collective reflecting on my struggles to achieve balance.  In trying to achieve balance I have actually been trying to achieve the unachievable by setting unrealistic expectations for myself.  OUCH.

Then I discovered Carponi’s (1997) recommendation to focus on living a fulfilling life instead of a balanced life.  What does that mean?? Try focusing on fully developing your character & abilities as opposed to trying to balance all the things.
