Finding Balance is a struggle. I often feel like when I start to find a balance in my world, the scale of life tips over and everything goes sliding to one side making such a mess I am unsure of how to sort the wreckage.
Sometimes I frantically go about trying to pick up the pieces, sorting piles, trying to gain back a semblance of what was. And sometimes, I just stare at the jumble, ignoring it, the elephant in the room, hoping it will disappear. . . it doesn’t.
I feel some area of my life is always getting neglected. It’s hard fulfilling these roles of Wife, Mother, Friend, Group Co-Leader, Daughter, Sibling, Employee, Animal Care-Taker, Writer, Person. . . the list some days seems never ending.
I met with one of the holistic practitioners I consult with yesterday and while she was going over my plan she said let’s get back to the basics.
What amazingly good advice, not just in that area of my life, but in all area’s. I feel like I need to cut out the clutter and get back to basics. The universe has been calling to me to cut down on the clutter these past few weeks and in retrospect, I can see that now. I’m glad it shouted the words aloud because sometimes it’s easier to hear the words when they are actually spoken.
Goal for the rest of the week. Cut down on clutter. Get back to basics.
