Balance – as I write this 3 years after the start of BML, I’m not sure I have Balance in my own life yet, but I try!
Like most of you, I’m a busy Mom balancing work and home responsibilities. I’m a Dance Mom, Piano Mom, Soccer Mom, and new this year – Hockey Mom. Trying to juggle those activities, plus the daily responsibilities around the house, walking the dog, and volunteering in both kids schools leaves little ME time. On top of that I’m trying to balance work for several clients – but I thrive on being busy and believe it or not, it helps me achieve BALANCE. I’ve learned to appreciate the timeI do have – I love my cup of tea each afternoon – and even more I love my glass of wine at night! J
My time with girlfriends is time I treasure and don’t take for granted, and I look forward to movie nights with my family and date nights with my hubby.
Some days are totally un-balanced but I’m trying to ease up and if it’s a bad day, trying to make myself understand that it’s okay that chores didn’t get done, and some emails went unanswered – I’m ME and I’m doing the best I can!

Kenda Blum – Founder
I started Balance My Life back in 2011 because my children had started school full-time and I was finding that I had some extra time on my hands. I realized that for the last 10 years of my life I had given all of my time to my children that I forgot how to take care of myself! I had become one of those moms.
I had let myself go both physically and mentally and did not like what I saw in the mirror. I had to get back on track. So after many conversations with friends I realized I had to ADD SOME BALANCE back in to my life and Balance My Life was born.
Now after almost 3 years I am happy to say I am back on track, I am in shape, lost the baby fat, take time for me and most of all made some great new relationships along the way.
I have so much more to do – so much more to accomplish and learn.
