So be sure when you step. Step with care and great tact, and remember that life’s a great balancing act.
Oh, the Places You’ll Go! (Classic Seuss)
– Dr. Seuess
As I sit here in a disaster of a house, exhausted and trying to figure out what happened to yet another day, I can’t help but think I lost my ability to balance. I used to feel like I had a handle on everything. Family, work, interests, SLEEP. Now hours go by and I feel I accomplished nothing. Well… that’s not totally true I do actually accomplish things I just feel out of sorts and I seem to be taking longer and longer to make any progress. It’s almost as if I have so many things I want/need to do that I can’t find the focus to do any of them. Then before I know it, the day is ending and I’m so tired all I want to do is sleep.
I realize it’s my own fault. I try to accomplish too much. I have a hard time saying no. I’ve made too many things non-negotiable. I can’t help it. It’s just who I am. Unfortunately, (maybe to your disbelief) I don’t have endless stores of energy. I think I may have hit a wall or what I like to call, a funk.
I’ve been trying to remind myself to stay clear headed, do what I can, when I can and just keep making healthy choices. But I’m struggling.
So for this weeks question I thought I’d ask you to share ways you find balance or at least attempt to. I know I’m not the only one that struggles but I also know some of you have mastered the art of the juggle. :)
