something is always born of excess.
Balance, balance, balance. Sometimes it is all I ever think about - how to get it...why I don't have it...eesh! It's enough to do my head in. My life is busy. And in the last few months, it's gotten even busier. I work a full time job plus 30+ hours a week at my freelance writing jobs. Things have been hectic, to say the least.
Most of the time, I think that I worry just as much about not being busy as I do about not being able to cope with it all. Busy means getting closer to my dreams. Busy means achieving something. Unfortunately, busy also means that a lot of other aspects of my life have fallen to the wayside. Like watching my favourite TV shows, cleaning my room, doing laundry, having a social life, or most importantly, sleeping! There just aren't enough hours in the day.
I may not have been able to achieve balance in my life yet, but I'm working on it!
One thing that is helping me out is doing one small thing for myself every other day. Just organizing papers, painting my toenails, or watching a movie....something that is for me. It makes me feel like I'm not losing my identity in the constant workload. Painting my toenails may not sound like much, but it's a reminder that my needs are just as important as my career aspirations.
What do you do to stay focused and balanced?
