03 Feb Is Life Balance Possible?
Why does LIFE BALANCE seem to be so elusive? Because it’s imaginary. No one is ever in equal balance. An admired colleague once described it more like a symphony where different parts are louder than others at different times, but when listening to it as a whole it is harmonic and beautiful.
What would be possible if you gave yourself permission to live in harmony and not strive for perfect balance all the time?
I divide my “life pie” into 4 parts; business, family, service and self-care. No day, week, or month is ever the same. If I lived in balance, my pie would look like this:
Not only is this unrealistic, imagine how boring life would be if every day and every week were the same. More realistically my life looks like this:
One may say I’m never in balance, but that’s okay. Collectively my pies makes sense. By accepting that my life pie isn’t always going to look the same I find peace and harmony. Understanding this makes me feel grounded, happy, and successful. How do you think a shift of perspective about life balance would effect you?
