That word used to annoy me. Still sorta does. Probably because I feel like I don’t have much of it in my life and everyone seems to be talking about the importance of living a balanced life.
I’ve always felt like an extremist – all in or all out. Like if I didn’t pledge my life and loyalty to something, it wasn’t worth it or wasn’t good enough. Whatever that even means.
We tell ourselves a lot of stuff, right? But do we think about what we're thinking about?
It’s time to listen to ourselves. Really listen. What are we saying to ourselves? Where did it come from? What does it mean? Does it make sense for our life?
We often accept things we’ve been told or been doing for years and never bother to question whether or not that belief or behavior actually serves our best interest.
So let’s do that now. Let’s question everything moving forward. It’s not too late.
Back to balance. Is it best to be balanced? How the hell should I know? ;)
There are plenty of people who aren’t balanced (according to others). Creative people who go off for months to work on a project. Entrepreneurs who start companies and spend every waking hour thinking only about their business. New moms who live and breathe for their babies...
Maybe it’s not about trying to balance each aspect of our lives every single day, but more within our life overall? And maybe what feels good to one person won't won't for another.
The only way to know what balance means to you is to think about it.
And the only way to know what works is to try something on for size.
I don't know about you, but I'm done with people telling me what to do and how to live.
Bee mindful, my friend!
