Ever have one of those weeks where you feel like you can’t keep up? This was one for me! Too many priorities and too little time!
I had to remind myself to breathe and to use this as an opportunity to put things in perspective.
Sometimes, we have to “lose our balance” to get it back. Instead of accepting that we will never achieve balance, taking a moment to reflect can often help us recover it.
For me this week, I had a long list of “to do’s” for my business. I also decided that I was going to start to spend 10 minutes per day learning conversational Japanese for an upcoming trip, and I had some interesting new developments in the 23andme community that made me want to pull out hundreds of printed ancestry charts and start databasing to discover how I am related to someone with whom I had a DNA match. I didn’t want to admit that I had taken on too much, because I didn’t want to let anything go. However, I have been on edge this week & having trouble concentrating. I’ve been skipping meals and forgetting to drink water throughout the day. No wonder I was feeling frustrated!
I invite you to think about what types of imbalances have impacted you this week. Has this effected you physically? Mentally? Emotionally? Rather than letting it get you down or giving up on trying to find balance, view your imbalance as a opportunity to think about your needs and to rediscover your balance in a new light.
