Hard Fun and The Beautiful – Bamboo Edition

(Can’t see the video? Then try watching it at Work Happy Now - Hard Fun and Beautiful – Bamboo Edition)

This week has been up and down and left and right. My emotions have been a little unstable, but I’ve been doing the best I can. I feel bad for Nikki because I was really grumpy a few days ago. I had trouble finding a balance between work and play.

This video covers the Hard, Fun and Beautiful of my week.

Here are the topics I cover:


- Balance of family and work life. I do Work Happy Now on the side, so a lot of my free time goes to content, marketing and connecting. I’ve been having trouble finding a balance between family and work. I want to build this site up to help more and more people, but I don’t want to miss my son growing up. It’s a daily balance that takes a lot of awareness.


- I was asked to join an bloggers’ alliance spurred on by Darren of Problogger’s post, Let me Show You Inside a Secret Blogging Alliance. I’m not allowed to say who asked me, but it’s some really awesome people. I feel very lucky. I just know that I’ll take this blog to the next level. And of course, I’ll bring all of you with me.


- I have a bamboo plant on my desk at work. Most days I ignore it, but this week it keeps drawing my attention back to it. I can’t help but notice the variance of green in each leaf. There is also this little sprout shooting up from underneath the pebbles. I forgot to water it for a week and it still finds a way to prosper.  We may not always feel appreciated at work, but we still have to find a way to prosper and grow.

How about you?

What happened to you that was Hard, Fun and Beautiful? I would love to hear what you have to say in the comment section.

If you haven't check out Work Happy the Google Way you better do it soon. I'm thinking about taking it down. While I'm thinking it over you better grab it. Just join my RSS or Email Feed and you'll get it for free.


One of the first places I go to get an emotional boost is Marc and Angel Hack Life. All of the articles are top notch, but one of my favorite posts is Who Will Save Your Life?
