I’m going to let you in on a little secret here:
Balance. Is It a Myth?
Instead of the ever "unattainable" balance....I like to think of my life being in rhythm or harmony.
I think of harmony as if everything is co-existing in a spirit of cooperation. But whatever you want to call it —harmony, rhythm, balance, or “fitting it all in”— there is a secret to doing more of what you want and less of what you don’t want.
Want to hear it?
I just need to warn you that although the equation sounds simple, it actually takes massive willpower to execute. It also requires that you get absolutely clear on what you want your life to look like, and what you do not want in your life.
Ready? Okay, here’s the secret:
· First ask yourself what isn’t serving you. What doesn’t need to be in your life? What is dragging you down? Keeping you awake at night?
· Have you identified a few things? Now, find a way to get rid of them. Or fix them over time...if you can't right away, devise small steps that will help you work towards this.)
· Next, ask yourself what you want in your life—or in this week or day? What do you want to accomplish? What do you want to do? Who do you want to be with? Focus your energy on these things. Anything that doesn’t fit into this larger scheme… let it go (or learn how to say “no”).
Ready to dive in and make a few changes? Give these tips a try and see how much more harmonious your life can be. No balance required.
"The rhythm of life is the perfect combination of rest, activity, and pace; it enables us to become the unique individuals we were created to be, enables us to excel in all we do, and empowers us with a certain clarity of mind and peace of heart."
