Today I was struck with the thought of finding a balance. How delicate it can be, and how difficult it is to achieve. I tend to get frustrated with myself when things fall out of balance, and lately this has been a common occurrence. The reason I gave it a lot of thought is because I have been feeling extremely blocked. I tend to put a lot on my plate at once, and when I don’t have time to devote to the things I really enjoy, my balance goes out of whack. As you all know I have been working two jobs, trying to balance that- a personal life and my sanity. I wonder sometimes, is a balance even possible? And if so, how do we find the balance…what is the secret? After thinking long and hard about this, I have come to the conclusion that there is no easy answer. There is no specific thing to do or not do, it all depends on the person and their physical/mental/emotional needs. Figuring out what works for you, is also quite the process- tricky I know.
What I have come up with for myself, is something simple. I realize that I need time for myself to relax, and reflect on things that are going on. I am someone who thrives on this. I enjoy doing things that make me happy, even if it’s something simple like making jewelry or drinking my morning coffee. These little things help me find my balance. That is what I have come up with as the answer. Life will always be hectic, and things will always get in the way, plans will always be made in advance and you will sometimes feel like your life is
one big schedule...and maybe that’s not a terrible thing. Figuring out what you need to make yourself happy is all that matters. Now I know that a little time dedicated to my favorite things is important. This includes spending time with my boyfriend,thrifting, having a good breakfast, painting my nails & toes, cleaning, and watching movies. These are just some things that give me a boost, I am sure you can come up with a lot that fit you personally.
I want to thank each and every one of you for continuing to read my blog. It makes me extremely happy that I can still make such great connections through my love of blogging. I also want you to know that I miss writing so much. I am hoping that I get through this small bump in the road and I can continue to do the things I love so much; blogging and updating my shop being two of these things. What this all boils down to, is that I have discovered there is no perfect balance, the only balance you can create is one that works for you- and that is as perfect as it can be.
