Looking for Balance

25 Nov

My recent post about juggling work and art struck a chord with people.  A lot of people struggle with the same thing. A lot of people are searching for the right balance. A lot of ideas are floating around about how to achieve that balance.

What I have decided is that the scales of balance are always tipped one way or the other. Trying to maneuver your life to achieve that perfect line of balance is a challenge that most likely will never be mastered. In spending our time searching for the balance we lose track of the moments that are making up our lives, and the chance to enjoy those moments as they occur.

While there may be some people out there who manage to always have that perfect balance (or does it just look that way to the rest of us?), for most of us life is constantly changing and moving. And that is OK. We need to learn to embrace it and appreciate it. Lots of things are important in our lives, and we need to realize that there are times when certain parts of our lives are going to take up more of our time. But eventually that pendulum will swing back the other way.

I think that is a good thing.

    I agree with you! Sometimes there is no point in pushing and forcing things.

    I’m waiting for the pendulum to swing back in my favor. 🙂

    You are so right Deb….I took a class many years ago from David Walker and he taught us to “Embrace Change”.

    For me it is having faith that the pendulum will swing back the other way while I courageously remind myself I am exactly where I need to be. Thank you for the post!

      Believing that the pendulum always swings back is difficult to do. But so worth it. Thanks for visiting. 🙂
