Being on "The Bachelorette" was the most meaningful and life-changing experience. I found the love of my life and built a busy career (with a travel schedule to match). I'm extremely grateful for all of this, but I've also learned that carving out time for myself, free from work obligations and time with Shawn is required to create balance. That being said, finding the time can be a challenge. So, I've learned some tricks to being prepared when I find a moment to myself.
