Just the word makes me feel some sort of resistance. What does it even mean to find balance in our lives??
I think, maybe, for me, it's not feeling overwhelmed. It's having the right amount of time to myself and time with others; the right amount of work and play; the right amount of quiet and noise; the right amount of travel-time and home-time.
How to achieve this? Well. I've done a lot of work on this. Learning to say "no" has been a really important thing for me. Listening to my body. Listening to my heart. Slowing down. Taking a breath...
You know, I think a big part of it has been letting go of expectations, putting down the script. Not measuring my life against anyone else's. Letting life happen... and being there -- really being there -- while it does.
Here's a quote I found while poking around about "balance," and a just love it. I hope you do, too.
