a lot of people pick a word for the year; a word they want to focus on for the year or a theme for the year. this year i picked BALANCE.
towards the end of last year i felt a little like my life was getting out of control. everything was taking up too much time, and i struggled to find time for the important things. BALANCE seemed like the perfect word to help me get back on track with things. some other day i will talk about goals, but this seemed like a goal i could achieve throughout the year. even though my life felt out of BALANCE at the start of the year, i was pretty convinced i could fix that throughout the year.
bad news...that hasn't happened. my life feels more unBALANCEd now than it did in january. things take longer than i think they should, and my to do list is always a mile long. my bedtime is absolutely ridiculous, and i'm not making the time for the most important things. i stopped updating my monthly goals because my goal has been survival.
i really like to be busy. whenever i have free time, i feel it up fast. it's time to take inventory of the things that are keeping me busy. are they worthwhile? are they helping me progress in life/helping me become a better person? the year is coming to an end, but it's not over yet. i still have a little time to try to get control over my life. obviously i need some help...
who has some ideas for me? what do you do to maintain BALANCE in your life? is it even possible?
