Oola Find Balance in an Unbalanced World

I was given a copy of Oola Find Balance in an Unbalanced World for Women in exchange for writing a blog post about it!


I had just recently finished their original book Oola Find Balance in an Unbalanced World.


This book came at a really good time for me.

At the beginning of this year, I was really fired up and ready to get my business to the next level and get back to blogging on a regular basis.  I sat down, and had everything scheduled and written in my planner.  I was going to CRUSH this year!  And then…. my husband ended up getting a new job and we found out we are pregnant with #6!

That zapped my motivation, determination and energy.

I’ve been so tired that I can barely take care of the five I have.  So picking them all up from school has required a two hour nap on the couch and my eleven year old has been starting dinner before Dad gets home (thank goodness for freezer meals!)  Now that I am feeling better, I feel like I have to play “catch-up.”  The house is a wreck and laundry is backed up.  Instead of crushing this year and getting my business closer to where I want it to be and getting back to blogging, my focus has changed.  Those things are still important to me and I’m still going to go after them, but I realize that God has me in a different season, so my time line is going to look much different than I had planned and anticipated.

This book has helped me prioritize what I need to focus on.  Oola is based on 7 “Fs;” Faith, Family, Field, Fun, Finances, Fitness and Friends.  I really like the Oola Wheel questions in the back of the book, but they do have a more simplified version online, here.  After they describe and share stories of each of the “Fs,” the book dives into Oola Blockers and Accelerators.  Blockers include: fear, guilt, anger, self-sabotage, laziness, envy and focus.  Accelerators are: gratitude, love, discipline, integrity, passion, humility and wisdom.  Every section in this book includes two personal testimonies from ladies dealing with each subject.

I found this book to be very inspirational and easy to relate to.  It helps put you on a path so that it’s easy to take the first step and get started, which is oftentimes the hardest part.
