Walking a tightrope is no joke. To get to the other end, you must counter each sway by balancing and maintaining your center. You always have to come back to your center to make it across. Swaying too much to one side may cause you to fall. A little swaying from side to side is normal, but you always need come back to the middle.
As for me, finding balance has been a challenge. I suppose I fall off the tightrope regularly. I want to focus on what is most important to me and find moderation. Creating an efficient schedule will allow time for myself as well as quality time with my family. I also want to emphasis more productivity in my creative areas while maintaining better routines in the home.
Balance to me means taking care of the necessities but also taking care of myself and considering my relationships. I don’t want to let certain roles dominate my time while other areas are neglected. One key to this is getting the least desirable jobs done first so that things don’t get piled up and I don’t feel rushed or frazzled. It will take time to find my center, but I will feel good about the process of moving forward to get there.
Do you have a word for the year? How do you find balance in life?
