There have been many discussions about how to achieve balance. I believe balance is designed to be subjective and the way we get to our particular balance is when we accept that life itself is an ebb and flow.
I think of being a child, sitting on a see-saw with a friend. We each work together to propel each other up and then down. We work in tandem. Until, that is, one of us jumps off without warning or else stays sitting and leaves you suspended. What then? What do you do when what we “thought” kept us balanced moves or refuses to move? Do you stay put or find a way to adjust the imbalance?
There have been many, many times when I have felt the weight of imbalance. Too many responsibilities, too many things to do, too many people to take care of. I am stuck on the ground with no one to help lift me. Until that is, I shift these things either in my mind or in my physical world so that my load is lightened. Other times I crave to be grounded, to have more challenge, more growth, more of everything so I look for things to anchor me such as more projects, more clients, volunteering at my children’s school. It’s about perspective and allowing yourself to shift into possibility. I believe with possibility there is everything.
Anything can shift, if you are open for it.
Tell me in the comments, how you have
made the shift.
