You know – we all feel overwhelmed at times.
We all have a never ending to-do list.
And we all secretly long to have a ‘balanced’ life.
But do you know what – that doesn’t exist.
Life is never balanced – nor will it be.
If you asked 10 people today “how you feeling?”
you’d get answers such as “wonderful”, “busy”, “hectic”, “crazy” etc
Not one person I suspect would say “balanced”
And that’s because moment to moment – we are all off balance – experiencing fluctuations — new ideas – new demands – new responsibilities — new desires…
The secret is to learn to be comfortable in the midst of all this turmoil.
The problem isn’t us — it’s the message.
Perfect balance is unachievable.
And frankly – it’s also something we don’t really want.
Daily life involves trying to integrate work – relationships – health – growth and personal interests — into some sort of fluid pattern.
To balance all of these – would be impossible.
Therefore don’t wish for balance.
Instead – accept that we are all in every moment, off balance.
And we need to get comfortable embracing this uncertainty. And that’s natural, normal and in it’s own cool way — kinda wonderful.
