“Balance is something that is often mentioned in personal development and well-being circles. It is said you should eat a balanced diet, live a balanced life and seek a good work/family balance. But what is balance? What does it mean to live a balanced life and why does balance seem like an elusive concept?” – Stephen Cox
Y’all, I have struggled with balance the last few weeks. Well, I always struggle with it, but it has hit an all-time high. I have a full-time job, part-time job, blogging/building my brand, trying to get healthy and now remodeling my home.
Oh, and trying to find time for friends and time for online dating sites (over being single). It’s too much!
But all is important. I need all of it to function and live my best life, but how do I balance it all. I don’t sleep. And that’s not healthy either.
I’m amazed, intrigued and impressed with people who do it all and look good while doing it. That ain’t me. It’s hard and stressful, but I can’t let any of it go.
The upside is that the house stuff will be over by the end of August. Or so I think. My deadline (I gave myself) is August 30th. With the house stuff complete blogging/building my brand should be better because I’m creating a space for that.
And the part-time job…I quit every week, but they won’t let me. One week it is going to stick. LOL!
“There is no secret to balance. You just have to feel the waves.” – Frank Herbert
This quote from Frank Herbert says it all, and I am now riding the waves.
Anyone else struggling with balance? If so, how do you handle it?
Until next time friends,
