Most people only think of balance in terms of work/family but if you look at all aspects of your life - work, family, friends, relationships, health, money, space, spirit and community – the balancing act can be overwhelming. Finding balance is a journey, a journey on a road without a map. Debbie Lessin, author of “Life is a Balancing Act…a fun book” (ISBN 0972892419) readily admits that her fascination with balance was discovered by taking that very journey and exploring the mystery and magic of all that life has to offer.
Lessin’s journey began when she turned 40. A highly acclaimed CPA, Lessin survived 10 years of business ownership combined with a workaholic attitude. “I simply became obsessed with finding balance in my life” explains Lessin. “I knew that it was time to ask myself some tough questions. In finding the answers to these questions, I opened my creative heart and mind to making some changes.” Five years later, slowly making significant changes to her life, Lessin downsized her business for the third time and found the time to express herself by writing a book. “I wanted to share the lessons that I had learned throughout my journey” justifies Lessin.
“Life is a Balancing Act…a fun book” is a beautifully illustrated gift book compiling 66 ideas for this balancing act we call life. Sharing her simple, practical and whimsical ideas, Lessin has divided her book into four main areas – Work and Play, Friends and Family, Heart and Soul, and Mind and Body. “Most of the ideas are not new” Lessin explains. “They are simple reminders of things that you already do and don’t give yourself credit for, or things that you want to do but always find excuses for why you can’t or won’t do them.” At the end of the book there is a list of ideas that cost less than $20 as well as the ideas that don’t take much time.
A quick and easy reference book, “Life is a Balancing Act…a fun book” is the kind of book that you’d just as likely find displayed on a coffee table as you would on a book shelf. “I like the idea of opening a page at random,” Lessin adds. “Balance is a gift you need to give to yourself, and by opening a page at random you’re picking your daily gift on a whim.” With many other practical uses, “Life is a Balancing Act” goes over and above the typical gift book. It is sure to please all readers, because truthfully, who couldn’t use a little balance in their life?
Debbie Lessin, CPA, entrepreneur, speaker, and author, continues to balance the vital aspects of life. Still performing seasonal accounting, Lessin has re-directed her creative energy into two other areas: Balancing Act Productions, Inc. where she has designed interactive workshops on life balance and goal implementation issues, and the ABOV Gallery, where she serves as mentor and marketing consultant. “Life is a Balancing Act…a fun book” (ISBN 0972892419) can be purchased at online bookstores.
