I work full time and travel for work at least twice a month.  I have 3 kids under 13 and I feel like I am being swept along by life.  I need my job and the income provides us with a comfortable life.  What can I do to feel more connected to myself and my family?Thusly far, you've chosen to work in order to provide your family with a comfortable life.  The issue here sounds as though it's your sense of "being swept along by life."  Of course, you don't need to be working full time to have that sense so perhaps a bit more intentionality is what you are seeking — a purpose if you will — for the decisions you are making.  This will result in you feeling more present and available to yourself and those you cherish.  It will also give you a sense of true fulfillment on a minute-by-minute basis.
