Is this really a thing?
Can life truly be balanced?
Ive personally found that the more in tune with myself I am, the more balance I can bring to my life. Lets face it, its up to us to bring the balance in, with kids, work, household duties, life etc we have to consciously make the choice to slow down and find the balance we seek!
Its always around mid August I am re-seeking balance from the relax of summer. Being away more than we ever are in the fall and winter, getting caught up with things at home that have been pushed aside for the time being.
The other night I had the opportunity for 2 hours completely alone at home. Well when I say alone I mean alone as a human 😉 My fur and feather babies were with me, however we spent 1 1/2 hrs of this time in complete silence. It was incredible. It was exactly what my soul was craving.
And it wasn’t to just do nothing, I did partially “do nothing”, however I find it much more productive to say I was resetting my energy, which was very productive and key!
Last week I changed my internet start screen from a generic one which everyday showcased so much violence and negativity (news) to Daily OM. Like a breath of fresh air! Now when I open an internet browser for anything, I am welcomed with a peaceful image and beautiful daily inspiration that takes minutes to read.
Today’s, Making Choices from a Place of Balance hit home for me, especially this week! “It is important to make decisions from a place of balance, by taking a breath and checking in with heart and mind.” This reminded me of my Monday evening at home. How in just 2 hours I was able to tidy up the kitchen, get some laundry done, meditate and journal. It felt incredible. It felt like I had all the time in the world. Simply by slowing down from a “busy” mind into a balanced mindset. 💞
