Finding Balance in Life
Is there such a thing, maybe balance is unbalance. More important I feel is allowing the ebb and flow of life to guide us. Like many of you I wear many hats. I am a women, a wife, a mother, a daughter, a friend, a business owner, an educator, adventure seeker, retreat builder and on and on. Balance wearing all these hats is not always achievable. What I have learned to do is prioritize the importance of things as they come up. Now I know it is not the same for everyone, we all have different obligations when it comes to our lives. But being ok with taking it one step at a time, like the saying goes, doing what you can on that particular day is a beautiful thing. It has been a great, long, hot summer in Las Vegas, if you are like me on some days I was drained, all I wanted was a cool drink and a fan over my head. Giving myself permission to take that time was balance for me. Not a lot of workouts happened this summer, a reformer class with a fan blowing was a great welcome instead of a walk outside, followed by an afternoon nap. I traveled and played, spend quality time with family, enjoyed some local pools with girlfriends, had the studio painted, organized closets and had some hot summer dates with my husband. I dealt with change and challenges as they came up too. Life didn’t stop because it was summer. Sometimes it is easy to get overwhelmed. Take a few moments and write down what your summer was like. I will bet you had some balance in there as well. Balance dose not have to be getting all your to do list done and finding quality time for yourself every single day, fitting into a perfect little box. Life is messy, but in the end it all adds up to a beautiful balanced life.
